The unit condition and global existence for a class of nonlinear Klein- Gordon equations. (English) Zbl 0781.35062
Summary: Global existence for a special class of nonlinear Klein-Gordon equations in two space dimensions is proved. In particular it is shown that, for small initial data, the equation \(\partial_{tt} u-\Delta u+ u= u^ 2\) has a global solution.
