Long-time existence for small data nonlinear Klein-Gordon equations on tori and spheres. (English) Zbl 1079.35070

The paper deals with long-time existence of solutions to quasilinear Klein-Gordon equations with small smooth initial data \(\varepsilon u_0,\varepsilon u_1\) on compact manifolds, namely tori and spheres. It is proved, that time of existence to smooth solutions tends to infinity as at least \(\varepsilon ^{-2}.\)
