This paper is devoted to the study of the initial value problem for the nonlinear Schrödinger equation in \({\mathbb{R}}^ N:\) \(iu_ t+\Delta u=g(u)\). The authors establish local existence and uniqueness for a wide class of subcritical nonlinearities g. the proofs make use of a truncation argument, space-time integrability properties of the linear equation, and a priori estimates derived from the conservation of energy. In particular, no differentiability property of the nonlinearity with respect to x is needed.
