On a regularizing effect of Schrödinger type groups. (English) Zbl 0699.35027
From the author’s introduction: If one considers the one parameter group of operators exp(it \(\Delta)\), because of the group law, and because these operators map isomorphically any \(H^ s({\mathbb{R}}^ n)\) onto itself, no regularizing effects can be expected in the \(H^ s({\mathbb{R}}^ n)\) framework. Nevertheless it can be shown that, for any f which belongs to \(L^ 2({\mathbb{R}}^ n)\), something more than being an \(L^ 2({\mathbb{R}}^ n)\) function can be asserted about exp((it \(\Delta)\)f.
The aim of this paper is to show that even regularity can be asserted. To prevent obstruction due to the group law, one considers Cauchy data in \(L^ 1({\mathbb{R}}^ n)\) and what is proved is regularity of \(W^{r,\infty}({\mathbb{R}}^ n)\) type (with \(r>2)\). An interesting remark is that the higher is the order of a pseudo-differential operator P(D) the more regularizing is exp(it \(\Delta)\). Furthermore this regularization is more effective in high space dimension. This translates the dispersion of the waves.
A weaker result was quoted by the author and H. A. Emami Rad [Trans. Am. Math. Soc. 292, 357-373 (1985; Zbl 0588.35029)] and here we make use of many of the same tools as in that article. These tools are direct computations and estimates using the stationary phase lemma. In the above cited work we emphasized boundedness whereas here we give regularity results. These are essential in view of nonlinear Schrödinger type evolution equations.
