Large-time blowup for a perturbation of the cubic Szegő equation

Haiyan Xu

Vol. 7 (2014), No. 3, 717–731
Abstract

We consider the following Hamiltonian equation on a special manifold of rational functions:

itu = Π(|u|2u) + α(u|1),α ,

where Π denotes the Szegő projector on the Hardy space of the circle S1. The equation with α = 0 was first introduced by Gérard and Grellier as a toy model for totally nondispersive evolution equations. We establish the following properties for this equation. For α < 0, any compact subset of initial data leads to a relatively compact subset of trajectories. For α > 0, there exist trajectories on which high Sobolev norms exponentially grow in time.
