Nondispersive decay for the cubic wave equation

Roland Donninger and Anıl Zenginoğlu

Vol. 7 (2014), No. 2, 461–495
Abstract

We consider the hyperboloidal initial value problem for the cubic focusing wave equation

(t2 + Δ x)v(t,x) + v(t,x)3 = 0,x 3.

Without symmetry assumptions, we prove the existence of a codimension-4 Lipschitz manifold of initial data that lead to global solutions in forward time which do not scatter to free waves. More precisely, for any δ (0,1), we construct solutions with the asymptotic behavior

v v0L4(t,2t)L4(B(1δ)t) t1 2 +

as t , where v0(t,x) = 2t and B(1δ)t := {x 3 : |x| < (1 δ)t}.
