Abstract: In this talk, we study the dynamics of charged particles in a weakly inhomogeneous dilute plasma. More precisely, we prove that the Vlasov-Maxwell-Boltzmann system admits global in time classical solutions when the distribution function is a small perturbation around a homogeneous solution of the Boltzmann equation.
