Global Strong Solutions of a 2-D New Magnetohydrodynamic System


The main objective of this paper is to study the global strong solution of the parabolic-hyperbolic incompressible magnetohydrodynamic model in the two dimensional space. Based on Agmon, Douglis, and Nirenberg’s estimates for the stationary Stokes equation and Solonnikov’s theorem on Lp-Lq-estimates for the evolution Stokes equation, it is shown that this coupled magnetohydrodynamic equations possesses a global strong solution. In addition, the uniqueness of the global strong solution is obtained.
