Outgoing parametrices and global Strichartz estimates for Schrödinger equations with variable coefficients

  • Daniel Tataru
Part of the Progress in Nonlinear Differential Equations and Their Applications book series (PNLDE, volume 69)


In these notes we discuss recent results concerning the long time evolution for variable coefficient time dependent Schrödinger evolutions in ℝn. Precisely, we use phase space methods to construct global in time outgoing parametrices and to prove Strichartz type estimates. This is done in the context of C 2 metrics which satisfy a weak asymptotic flatness condition at infinity.
