Dispersion for the Schrödinger equation on networks
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, we consider the Schrödinger equation on a network formed by a tree with the last generation of edges formed by infinite strips. We give an explicit description of the solution of the linear Schrödinger equation with constant coefficients. This allows us to prove dispersive estimates, which in turn are useful for solving the nonlinear Schrödinger equation. The proof extends also to the laminar case of positive step-function coefficients having a finite number of discontinuities. © 2011 American Institute of Physics.
