Lisbon Webinar in Analysis and Differential Equations

Explicit solutions to the cubic wave equation

Sala P3.10, Instituto Superior Técnico (com transmissão via Zoom)

Por Giuseppe Negro (CAMGSD, Instituto Superior Técnico).

We construct a two-parameter family of solutions to the focusing cubic wave equation in $\mathbb{R}^{1+3}$. Depending on the values of the parameters, these solutions either scatter to linear ones, blow-up in finite time, or exhibit a new type of unstable behaviour that acts as a threshold between the other two. We further prove that the blow-up behaviour is stable and we characterize the threshold behaviour precisely, both pointwise and in Sobolev sense.

Joint work with Thomas Duyckaerts (Sorbonne Paris Nord).

The Lisbon Webinar in Analysis in Differential Equations is a joint iniciative of CAMGSD, CMAFcIO and GFM, three research centers of the University of Lisbon. It is aimed at filling the absence of face-to-face seminars and wishes to be a meeting point of mathematicians working in the field.
