Semiclassical limit and well-posedness of nonlinear Schrödinger-Poisson systems. (English) Zbl 1055.35111
The authors deal with the Cauchy problem for the nonlinear Schrödinger-Poisson system \[ \begin{gathered} i\varepsilon\psi^\varepsilon_t+ {\varepsilon^2\over 2} \Delta\psi^\varepsilon- (V^\varepsilon(x,t)+ f'(|\psi^\varepsilon|^2) \psi^\varepsilon- (\arg\psi^\varepsilon) \psi^\varepsilon= 0,\\ -\Delta V^\varepsilon= |\psi^\varepsilon|^2- C(x),\quad V\to 0\text{ as }| x|\to\infty,\end{gathered}\tag{1} \] subject to the rapidly oscillating (WKB) initial condition \[ \psi^\varepsilon(x,0)= \psi^\varepsilon_0(x)= A^\varepsilon_0(x) \exp\biggl({i\over\varepsilon} S_0(x)\biggr),\tag{2} \] where \(f\), \(S_0\), \(A^\varepsilon_0\) are given functions. Under some suitable assumptions on the data (1)–(2) the authors show the local well-posedness. Moreover, they obtain global existence and study the time-asymptotic behaviour of classical solutions of (1)–(2).
