The Cauchy problem for the Gross–Pitaevskii equation. (English) Zbl 1122.35133

The author considers the initial-value problem for the Gross-Pitaevskii equation \(iu{_ {t}}+\Delta u=(| u| {^{2}}-1)u,\) where \(x\in{\mathbb R}{^{d}}\) with \(d=2,3.\) Using some Strichartz estimates it is shown that the initial-value problem is globally well posed on the space \(\{u\in H_{\text{loc}}^{1}({\mathbb {R}}{^{d}}): \nabla u\in L{^{2}}({\mathbb R}{^{d}}),\;| u| {^{2}}-1\in L{^{2}}({\mathbb {R}}{^{d}})\}.\)
