Abstract [en]

We show that the so-called Robinson - Trautman - Maxwell equations do not constitute a well-posed initial-value problem. That is, the dependence of the solution on the initial data is not continuous in any norm built out from the initial data and a finite number of its derivatives. Thus, they cannot be used to solve for solutions outside the analytic domain.
