Refined mass-critical Strichartz estimates for Schrödinger operators

Casey Jao

Vol. 13 (2020), No. 7, 1955–1994

We develop refined Strichartz estimates at L2 regularity for a class of time-dependent Schrödinger operators. Such refinements quantify near-optimizers of the Strichartz estimate and play a pivotal part in the global theory of mass-critical NLS. On one hand, the harmonic analysis is quite subtle in the L2-critical setting due to an enormous group of symmetries, while on the other hand, the space-time Fourier analysis employed by the existing approaches to the constant-coefficient equation are not adapted to nontranslation-invariant situations, especially with potentials as large as those considered in this article.

Using phase-space techniques, we reduce to proving certain analogues of (adjoint) bilinear Fourier restriction estimates. Then we extend Tao’s bilinear restriction estimate for paraboloids to more general Schrödinger operators. As a particular application, the resulting inverse Strichartz theorem and profile decompositions constitute a key harmonic analysis input for studying large-data solutions to the L2-critical NLS with a harmonic oscillator potential in dimensions 2. This article builds on recent work of Killip, Visan, and the author in one space dimension.
