Global attraction to solitary waves for Klein-Gordon equation with mean field interaction. (English) Zbl 1177.35201

Summary: We consider a \(\mathbf U(1)\)-invariant nonlinear Klein-Gordon equation in dimension \(n\geq1\), self-interacting via the mean field mechanism. We analyze the long-time asymptotics of finite energy solutions and prove that, under certain generic assumptions, each solution converges as \(t\rightarrow \pm \infty \) to the two-dimensional set of all “nonlinear eigenfunctions” of the form \(\varphi (x)e ^{- i\omega t}\). This global attraction is caused by the nonlinear energy transfer from lower harmonics to the continuous spectrum and subsequent dispersive radiation.
