Math 251B (Topics in Partial Differential Equations).
Lectures: MWF 10:00am-11:00pm in MS 6201.
Instructor: Monica Visan, MS 6167. Email address: email@example.com
Office Hours: by appointment.
Topics: We investigate local and global well-posedness for the
semilinear Schrodinger equation. The lectures will cover
- Strichartz, bilinear Strichartz, and local smoothing estimates.
- Subcritical well-posedness and unconditional uniqueness.
- Critical well-posedness, unconditional uniqueness, blowup alternative.
- Stability theory.
- Conservation laws and subcritical global well-posedness.
- Monotonicity formulae and scattering.
- Linear profile decomposition.
- Minimal blowup solutions.
- Energy-critical global well-posedness and scattering.
