Local Cauchy theory for the nonlinear Schrödinger equation in spaces of infinite mass

  • Simão Correia


We consider the Cauchy problem for the nonlinear Schrödinger equation on \(\mathbb {R}^d\), where the initial data is in \(\dot{H}^1(\mathbb {R}^d)\cap L^p(\mathbb {R}^d)\). We prove local well-posedness for large ranges of p and discuss some global well-posedness results.
