Abstract

The wave turbulence equation is an effective kinetic equation that describes the dynamics of wave spectra in weakly nonlinear and dispersive media. Such a kinetic model was derived by physicists in the 1960s, though the well-posedness theory remains open due to the complexity of resonant interaction kernels. In this paper, we provide a global unique radial strong solution-the first such result-to the wave turbulence equation for capillary waves.
