Nonlinear Dispersive Equations: Local and Global Analysis by Terence Tao

By Terence Tao

Between nonlinear PDEs, dispersive and wave equations shape an immense category of equations. those contain the nonlinear Schrödinger equation, the nonlinear wave equation, the Korteweg de Vries equation, and the wave maps equation. This ebook is an advent to the tools and effects utilized in the trendy research (both in the community and globally in time) of the Cauchy challenge for such equations. beginning in basic terms with a easy wisdom of graduate genuine research and Fourier research, the textual content first offers easy nonlinear instruments equivalent to the bootstrap technique and perturbation thought within the easier context of nonlinear ODE, then introduces the harmonic research and geometric instruments used to regulate linear dispersive PDE. those tools are then mixed to check 4 version nonlinear dispersive equations. via wide routines, diagrams, and casual dialogue, the booklet offers a rigorous theoretical remedy of the fabric, the real-world instinct and heuristics that underlie the topic, in addition to declaring connections with different parts of PDE, harmonic research, and dynamical structures. because the topic is titanic, the e-book doesn't try and supply a finished survey of the sphere, yet in its place concentrates on a consultant pattern of effects for a specific set of equations, starting from the basic neighborhood and worldwide lifestyles theorems to very contemporary effects, fairly concentrating on the new growth in realizing the evolution of energy-critical dispersive equations from huge info. The publication is acceptable for a graduate path on nonlinear PDE. Readership Graduate scholars and study mathematicians attracted to nonlinear partial differential equations.

Let a, 6 > 0, let d > 1 be an integer, let 0 < y < d, and let R+ and A : Rd R+ be locally integrable functions such that one has u : Rd the pointwise inequality e-al=-vl u(x) < A(x) + b u(y) d1/ Ix - YI' for almost every x E Rd. Suppose also that u is a tempered distribution in addition to a locally integrable function. Show that if 0 < a' < a and b is sufficiently small depending on a, a', y, then we have the bound u(x) < 2IIe-"1'-uIA(y)IIL- (Rd) Id for almost every x E Rd. (Hint: you will need to regularise u first, averaging on a small ball, in order to convert the tempered distribution hypothesis into a pointwise subexponential bound.

Write v(t) := u(t) exp(- fto B(s) ds). Then v is absolutely continuous, and an application of the chain rule shows that Otv(t) < 0. In particular v(t) < v(to) for all t E [to, tI], and the claim follows. 13. This inequality can be viewed as controlling the effect of linear feedback; see Figure 4. As mentioned earlier, this inequality is sharp in the "worst case scenario" when Otu(t) equals B(t)u(t) for all t. This is the case of "adversarial feedback", when the forcing term B(t)u(t) is always acting to increase u(t) by the maximum amount possible.

Let D be a real Hilbert space, and let J E End(D) be a linear map such that j2 = -id. Show that the bilinear form w : V x V --+ R defined by w(u, v) :_ (u, Jv) is a symplectic form, and that V,H = -JVH (where V is the gradient with respect to the Hilbert space structure). 3). 28 (Linear Darboux theorem). 27; in particular symplectic spaces are always even-dimensional. 32 1. ORDINARY DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS (Hint: induct on the dimension of D. If the dimension is non-zero, use the nondegeneracy of w to locate two linearly independent vectors u, v E D such that w(u,v) # 0.
