Energy dispersed solutions for the (4+1)-dimensional Maxwell-Klein-Gordon equation


This article is devoted to the mass-less energy critical Maxwell-Klein-Gordon system in 4+1 dimensions. In earlier work of the second author, joint with Krieger and Sterbenz, we have proved that this problem has global well-posedness and scattering in the Coulomb gauge for small initial data. This article is the second of a sequence of three papers of the authors, whose goal is to show that the same result holds for data with arbitrarily large energy. Our aim here is to show that large data solutions persist for as long as one has small energy dispersion; hence failure of global well-posedness must be accompanied with a non-trivial energy dispersion.
