The author establishes Strichartz estimates for the linear counterpart of the nonlinear Schrödinger equation on irrational tori in three space dimensions. To this aim he combines the Hardy-Littlewood circle method with the Fourier-analytical approach from the Euclidean case. The obtained estimates are then applied to derive local and global wellposedness results for the Cauchy problem for the defocusing nonlinear Schrodinger equation on a three dimensional irrational torus (the cubic case is included). The use of the author’s \(X_{s,b}\) spaces is also needed to obtain the required estimates for the nonlinear terms.
