Trend to the equilibrium for the Fokker-Planck system with an external magnetic field

Abstract Full Text(HTML) Related Papers Cited by
  • We consider the Fokker-Planck equation with an external magnetic field. Global-in-time solutions are built near the Maxwellian, the global equilibrium state for the system. Moreover, we prove the convergence to equilibrium at exponential rate. The results are first obtained on spaces with an exponential weight. Then they are extended to larger functional spaces, like certain Lebesgue spaces with polynomial weights and modified weighted Sobolev spaces, by the method of factorization and enlargement of the functional space developed in [Gualdani, Mischler, Mouhot, 2017].
