In a recent paper, Kenig, Ponce and Vega study the low regularity behavior of the focusing nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS), focusing modified Korteweg-de Vries (mKdV), and complex Korteweg-de Vries (KdV) equations. Using soliton and breather solutions, they demonstrate the lack of local well-posedness for these equations below their respective endpoint regularities. In this paper, we study the defocusing analogues of these equations, namely defocusing NLS, defocusing mKdV, and real KdV, all in one… 
Ill-posedness for nonlinear Schrodinger and wave equations
The nonlinear wave and Schrodinger equations on Euclidean space of any dimension, with general power nonlinearity and with both the focusing and defocusing signs, are proved to be ill-posed in the
Well-posedness and dynamics of solutions to the generalized KdV with low power nonlinearity
We consider two types of the generalized Korteweg de Vries equation, where the nonlinearity is given with or without absolute values, and, in particular, including the low powers of nonlinearity, an
Ill-posedness issues for nonlinear dispersive equations
These notes are devoted to the notion of well-posedness of the Cauchy problem for nonlinear dispersive equations. We present recent methods for prov- ing ill-posedness type results for dispersive
Strong ill-posedness for fractional Hartree and cubic NLS Equations
We consider fractional Hartree and cubic nonlinear Schrödinger equations on Euclidean space R and on torus T. We establish norm inflation (a stronger phenomena than standard illposedness) at every
Long time decay and asymptotics for the complex mKdV equation
We study the asymptotics of the complex modified Korteweg-de Vries equation ∂tu+ ∂ 3 xu = ±|u| 2 ∂xu In the real valued case, it is known that solutions with small, localized initial data exhibit
A remark on the well-posedness of the modified KdV equation in the Fourier-Lebesgue spaces
We study the complex-valued modified Korteweg-de Vries equation (mKdV) on the circle. We first consider the real-valued setting and show global well-posedness of the (usual) renormalized mKdV
On the Probabilistic Cauchy Theory of the Cubic Nonlinear Schrödinger Equation on Rd, d≥3
We consider the Cauchy problem of the cubic nonlinear Schrodinger equation (NLS) : i∂tu+Δu = ±|u|2u on Rd, d ≥ 3, with random initial data and prove almost sure well-posedness results below the
Normal form approach to unconditional well-posedness of nonlinear dispersive PDEs on the real line
In this paper, we revisit the infinite iteration scheme of normal form reductions, introduced by the first and second authors (with Z. Guo), in constructing solutions to nonlinear dispersive PDEs.
Quasilinear dynamics of KdV-type equations
We consider the behavior of nonlinear KdV-type equations that admit quasilinear dynamics in the sense that the nonlinear flow cannot be simply treated as a perturbation of the linear flow, even for
Low Regularity Solutions of Korteweg-de Vries and Chern-Simons-Schrodinger Equations
Author(s): Liu, Baoping | Advisor(s): Tataru, Daniel | Abstract: The aim of this thesis is to understand the locall wellposednesstheory for some nonlinear dispersive equations at low regularity. The


The Korteweg–deVries Equation: A Survey of Results
The Korteweg–de Vries equation \[ u_t + uu_x + u_{xxx} = 0\] is a nonlinear partial differential equation arising in the study of a number of different physical systems, e.g., water waves, plasma
Korteweg-de Vries Equation
The Korteweg-de Vries (KdV) equation, given here in canonical form, u t + 6uu x + u xxx = 0 , (1) is widely recognised as a paradigm for the description of weakly nonlinear long waves in many
A bilinear estimate with applications to the KdV equation
u(x, 0) = u0(x), where u0 ∈ H(R). Our principal aim here is to lower the best index s for which one has local well posedness in H(R), i.e. existence, uniqueness, persistence and continuous dependence
Long range scattering for nonlinear Schrödinger equations in one space dimension
We consider the scattering problem for the nonlinear Schrödinger equation in 1+1 dimensions: where ∂ = ∂/∂x,λ∈R∖{0},μ∈R,p>3. We show that modified wave operators for (*) exist on a dense set of a

A systematic method is developed which allows one to identify certain important classes of evolution equations which can be solved by the method of inverse scattering. The form of each evolution
