We study here the Vlasov-Maxwell system in its classical and relativistic form. We prove the stability of solutions in weak topologies and deduce from this stability result the global existence of a weak solution with large initial data. The main tools consist of a new regularity result for velocity averages of solutions of some general linear transport equations and the method of renormalization introduced by the authors in previous work.
