The nonlinear Schrödinger equation ground states on product spaces

##### Abstract

We study the nature of the nonlinear Schrödinger equation ground states on the product spaces ${ℝ}^{n}×{M}^{k}$, where ${M}^{k}$ is a compact Riemannian manifold. We prove that for small ${L}^{2}$ masses the ground states coincide with the corresponding ${ℝ}^{n}$ ground states. We also prove that above a critical mass the ground states have nontrivial ${M}^{k}$ dependence. Finally, we address the Cauchy problem issue, which transforms the variational analysis into dynamical stability results.
