About the Authors
  • This study of Schrödinger equations with power-type nonlinearity provides a great deal of insight into other dispersive partial differential equations and geometric partial differential equations. It presents important proofs, using tools from harmonic analysis, microlocal analysis, functional analysis, and topology. This includes a new proof of Keel–Tao endpoint Strichartz estimates, and a new proof of Bourgain's result for radial, energy-critical NLS. It also provides a detailed presentation of scattering results for energy-critical and mass-critical equations. This book is suitable as the basis for a one-semester course, and serves as a useful introduction to nonlinear Schrödinger equations for those with a background in harmonic analysis, functional analysis, and partial differential equations.

    • Readers will find that the study of semilinear Schrödinger equations is useful in its own right, having many applications in physics
    • Covers a very active area of research in partial differential equations
    • This book is one of the first to present proofs of scattering for the mass-critical NLS problem
