Uniform in N global well-posedness of the time-dependent Hartree–Fock–Bogoliubov equations in \(\mathbb {R}^{1+1}\)

  • Jacky Jia Wei Chong


We prove the global well-posedness of the time-dependent Hartree–Fock–Bogoliubov (TDHFB) equations in \(\mathbb {R}^{1+1}\) with two-body interaction potential of the form \(N^{-1}v_N(x) = N^{\beta -1} v(N^\beta x)\) where \(v\ge 0\) is a sufficiently regular radial function, i.e., \(v \in L^1(\mathbb {R})\cap C^\infty (\mathbb {R})\). In particular, using methods of dispersive PDEs similar to the ones used in Grillakis and Machedon (Commun Partial Differ Equ 42:24–67, 2017), we are able to show for any scaling parameter \(\beta >0\) the TDHFB equations are globally well-posed in some Strichartz-type spaces independent of N, cf. (Bach et al. in The time-dependent Hartree–Fock–Bogoliubov equations for Bosons, 2016. arXiv:1602.05171).
