Strichartz Estimates for the Schrödinger Equation



Department of Mathematics, University of Torino, v. Carlo Alberto 10, Torino, Italy email:, email:


The objective of this paper is to report on recent progress on Strichartz estimates for the Schrödinger equation and to present the state-of-the-art. These estimates have been obtained in Lebesgue spaces, Sobolev spaces and, recently, in Wiener amalgam and modulation spaces. We present and compare the different technicalities. Then, we illustrate applications to well-posedness.

Keywords and phrases: Dispersive estimates, Strichartz estimates, Wiener amalgam spaces, Modulation spaces, Schrödinger equation.


El objetivo de este trabajo es reportar los progresos recientes sobre estimativas de Strichartz para la ecuación de Schrödinger y presentar el estado de arte. Estas estimativas han sido obtenidas en espacios de Lebesgue, espacios de Sobolev, y recientemente, en espacios de Wiener amalgamados y de modulación. Presentamos y comparamos los diferentes aspectos técnicos envueltos. Ilustramos los resultados con aplicaciones a buena colocación.
