AB - We prove uniqueness of solutions of the DLSS equation in a class of sufficiently regular functions. The global weak solutions of the DLSS equation constructed by Jüngel and Matthes belong to this class of uniqueness. We also show uniqueness of solutions for the quantum drift-diffusion equation, which contains additional drift and second-order diffusion terms. The results hold in case of periodic or Dirichlet-Neumann boundary conditions. Our proof is based on a monotonicity property of the DLSS operator and sophisticated approximation arguments; we derive a PDE satisfied by the pointwise square root of the solution, which enables us to exploit the monotonicity property of the operator.
