Construction of solutions with exactly k blow-up points for the Schrödinger equation with critical nonlinearity. (English) Zbl 0707.35021

The paper deals with the nonlinear Schrödinger equation \[ (1)\quad i \partial u/\partial t=-\Delta u-| u|^{4/N}u,\quad u(0,)=\phi (), \] where u: [0,T)\(\times {\mathbb{R}}^ N\to {\mathbb{C}}\). The author constructs for any given points \(x_ 1,x_ 2,...,x_ k\) in \({\mathbb{R}}^ N\) a solution u(t) of (1), which blows up in a finite time T at exactly \(x_ 1,x_ 2,...,x_ k\). He also describes the behaviour of the solution u(t) when t goes to T at the blow-up points and outside them.
