In mathematicsthe Cauchy—Kowalevski theorem also written as the Cauchy—Kovalevskaya theorem is the main local existence and uniqueness theorem for analytic partial differential equations associated with Cauchy initial value problems.

This theorem is about the existence of solutions to a system of m differential equations in n dimensions when the coefficients are analytic functions.

The theorem and its proof are valid for analytic functions of either real or complex variables. Then there is a neighbourhood of 0 in W on which the quasilinear Cauchy problem.


Cauchy-Kowalewski theorem

Lewy’s example shows that the theorem is not valid for all smooth functions. The theorem can also be stated in abstract real or complex vector spaces. In this case, the same result holds.

Both sides of the partial differential equation can be expanded as formal power series and give recurrence relations for the coefficients of the formal power series for f that uniquely determine the coefficients. The Taylor series coefficients of the A i ‘s and b are majorized in matrix and vector norm by a simple scalar rational analytic function.

The corresponding scalar Cauchy problem involving this function instead of the A i ‘s and b has an explicit local analytic solution.

The absolute values of its coefficients majorize the norms of those of the original problem; so the formal power series solution must converge where the scalar solution converges. If F and f j are analytic functions near 0, then the non-linear Cauchy problem.

This follows from the first order problem by considering the derivatives of h appearing on the right koowalewski side as components of a vector-valued function. However this formal power series does not converge for any non-zero values of tso there are no analytic solutions in a neighborhood of the origin.


This example is due to Kowalevski. This theorem involves a cohomological formulation, presented in the language of D-modules.
