On the Division Problem for the Wave Maps Equation
We consider Wave Maps into the sphere and give a new proof of small data global well-posedness and scattering in the critical Besov space, in any space dimension \(n \geqslant 2\). We use an adapted version of the atomic space \(U^2\) as the single building block for the iteration space. Our approach to the so-called division problem is modular as it systematically uses two ingredients: atomic bilinear (adjoint) Fourier restriction estimates and an algebra property of the iteration space, both of which can be adapted to other phase functions.
