Exponential Time Decay Estimates for the Landau Equation on Torus    [PDF]

Kung-Chien Wu
We study the time decay estimates for the linearized Landau equation on torus when the initial perturbation is not necessarily smooth. Our result reveals the kinetic and fluid aspects of the equation. We design a Picard-type iteration and Mixture lemma for constructing the increasingly regular kinetic like waves, they are carried by transport equations and have exponential time decay rate. The fluid like waves are constructed as part of the long-wave expansion in the spectrum of the Fourier mode for the space variable and the time decay rate depends on the size of the domain. The Mixture lemma plays an important role in this paper, this lemma is parallel to Boltzmann equation but the proof is more challenge.
