**Instructor:** Monica Visan, MS 6167. Email address: visan@math.ucla.edu

**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.
- Ill-posedness.
- Conservation laws and subcritical global well-posedness.
- Monotonicity formulae and scattering.
- Linear profile decomposition.
- Minimal blowup solutions.
- Energy-critical global well-posedness and scattering.
