Abstract: A basic model for describing plasma dynamics is given by the Euler-Maxwell system, in which compressible ion and electron fluids interact with their own self-consistent electromagnetic field. In this paper we consider the “one-fluid” Euler-Maxwell model for electrons, in 2 spatial dimensions, and prove global stability of a constant neutral background. In 2 dimensions our global solutions have relatively slow (strictly less than 1/t) pointwise decay and the system has a large (codimension 1) set of quadratic time resonances. The issue in such a situation is to solve the “division problem”. To control the solutions we use a combination of improved energy estimates in the Fourier space, an L (2) bound on an oscillatory integral operator, and Fourier analysis of the Duhamel formula.
