Wave Equations with Moving Potentials

  • Gong ChenEmail author


In this paper, we study the some reversed Strichartz estimates along general time-like trajectories for wave equations in \({\mathbb {R}}^{3}\). Some applications of the reversed Strichartz estimates and the structure of wave operators to the wave equation with one potential are also discussed. These techniques are useful to analyze the stability problem of traveling solitons.



I want to thank Marius Beceanu for many useful discussions.
