BKM’s criterion and global weak solutions for magnetohydrodynamics with zero viscosity. (English) Zbl 1171.35452
Summary: We derive a criterion for the breakdown of classical solutions to the incompressible magnetohydrodynamic equations with zero viscosity and positive resistivity in $$\mathbb{R}^3$$. This result is analogous to the celebrated Beale-Kato-Majda’s breakdown criterion for the inviscid Eluer equations of incompressible fluids. In $$\mathbb{R}^2$$ we establish global weak solutions to the magnetohydrodynamic equations with zero viscosity and positive resistivity for initial data in Sobolev space $$H^1(\mathbb{R}^2)$$.
