Abstract

We perform the mathematical derivation of the compressible and incompressible Euler equations from the modulated nonlinear Klein-Gordon equation. Before the formation of singularities in the limit system, the nonrelativistic-semiclassical limit is shown to be the compressible Euler equations. If we further rescale the time variable, then in the semiclassical limit (the light speed kept fixed), the incompressible Euler equations are recovered. The proof involves the modulated energy introduced by Brenier (2000) [1].
