Global well-posedness in the super-critical dissipative quasi-geostrophic equations. (English) Zbl 1019.86002
Summary: We consider the quasi-geostrophic equation with the dissipation term, \(\kappa(-\Delta)^\alpha \theta\), \(0\leq\alpha\leq\frac 12\). In the case \(\alpha=\frac 12\), P. Constantin, D. Cordoba and J. Wu [Indiana Univ. Math. J. 50, Spec. Iss., 97-107 (2001; Zbl 0989.86004)] proved the global existence of a strong solution in \(H^1\) and \(H^2\) under the assumption of small \(L^\infty\)-norm of initial data. In this paper, we prove the global existence in the scale invariant Besov space, \(\dot B^{2 - 2\alpha }_{2,1}\), \(0\leq\alpha\leq\frac 12\) for initial data small in the \(\dot B^{2 - 2\alpha }_{2,1}\) norm. We also prove a global stability result in \(\dot B^1_{2,1}\).
