Title:Strichartz inequalities and best constants
Seminar:CCMA Luncheon Seminar
Speaker:Vadim Zharnitsky, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Strichartz inequalities are related to the space-time estimates of the solutions of linear dispersive equations, such as the Schroedinger equation arising in quantum mechanics. These estimates are extremely useful for the study of nonlinear dispersive PDEs and they reflect the dispersive nature of the equations - different frequencies propagate with different velocities. We will give a simple derivation of the classical Strichartz inequality in one dimension and explain why the Gaussian function produces the best constant.
