Rigorous derivation of incompressible e-MHD equations from compressible Euler-Maxwell equations. (English) Zbl 1170.35081

The incompressible e-MHD equations from compressible Euler-Maxwell equations are derived via the quasi-neutral regime. Assuming that the initial data are well prepared for the electric density, electric velocity, and magnetic field (but not necessarily for the electric field), the convergence of the smooth solutions of the compressible Euler-Maxwell equations in a torus to the solutions of the incompressible e-MHD equations (on time intervals on which a smooth solution of the incompressible e-MHD exists) is proved rigorously by using weighted energy technique. One of the main tools for establishing uniform a priori estimates is the use of the curl-div decomposition of the gradient and the wave-type equation of the Maxwell equations.
