Focusing solutions of the Vlasov-Poisson system

Department of Mathematics, Brown University, 151 Thayer Street, Providence, RI 02912, USA

Received  February 2019 Revised  May 2019 Published  September 2019

We study smooth, spherically-symmetric solutions to the Vlasov-Poisson system and relativistic Vlasov-Poisson system in the plasma physical case. We construct solutions that initially possess arbitrarily small $ C^k $ norms ($ k \geq 1 $) for the charge densities and the electric fields, but attain arbitrarily large $ L^\infty $ norms of them at some later time.
