A dispersive regularization for the modified camassa–holm equation
© 2018 Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics In this paper, we present a dispersive regularization approach to construct a global N-peakon weak solution to the modified Camassa–Holm equation (mCH) in one dimension. In particular, we perform a double mollification for the system of ODEs describing trajectories of N-peakon solutions and obtain N smoothed peakons without collisions. Though the smoothed peakons do not give a solution to the mCH equation, the weak consistency allows us to take the smoothing parameter to zero and the limiting function is a global N-peakon weak solution. The trajectories of the peakons in the constructed solution are globally Lipschitz continuous and do not cross each other. When N = 2, the solution is a sticky peakon weak solution. At last, using the N-peakon solutions and through a mean field limit process, we obtain global weak solutions for general initial data m0 in Radon measure space.
