Unconditional uniqueness of solution for \(\dot H^{s_c }\) critical 4th order NLS in high dimensions

  • Chao Lu
  • Jing Lu


In this paper, we study the unconditional uniqueness of solution for the Cauchy problem of \(\dot H^{s_c } (0 \leqslant s_c < 2)\) critical nonlinear fourth-order Schrödinger equations i t u2u−ϵu = λ|u| α u. By employing paraproduct estimates and Strichartz estimates, we prove that unconditional uniqueness of solution holds in \(C_t (I;\dot H^{s_c } (\mathbb{R}^d ))\) for d ≥ 11 and \(\min \left\{ {1^ - ,\tfrac{8} {{d - 4}}} \right\} \geqslant \alpha > \frac{{ - (d - 4) + \sqrt {(d - 4)^2 + 64} }} {4}\).
