A remark on the global existence of a third order dispersive flow into locally Hermitian symmetric spaces
Access this Article
We prove global existence of solutions to the initial value problem for a third order dispersive flow into compact locally Hermitian symmetric spaces. The equation under consideration generalizes two-sphere-valued completely integrable systems which model the motion of vortex filament. Unlike one-dimensional Schrödinger maps, our third order equation is not completely integrable under the curvature condition on the target manifold in general. The idea of our proof is to exploit two conservation laws and an energy which is not necessarily preserved in time but does not blow up in finite time.
