A sufficient condition for global existence of solutions to a generalized derivative nonlinear Schrödinger equation

Vol. 10 (2017), No. 5, 1149–1167
Abstract

We give a sufficient condition for global existence of the solutions to a generalized derivative nonlinear Schrödinger equation (gDNLS) by a variational argument. The variational argument is applicable to a cubic derivative nonlinear Schrödinger equation (DNLS). For (DNLS), Wu (2015) proved that the solution with the initial data u0 is global if u0L22 < 4π by the sharp Gagliardo–Nirenberg inequality. The variational argument gives us another proof of the global existence for (DNLS). Moreover, by the variational argument, we can show that the solution to (DNLS) is global if the initial data u0 satisfies u0L22 = 4π and the momentum P(u0) is negative.
