Global well posedness and scattering for the cubic nonlinear wave equation

Monday, November 21, 2016 -
3:00pm to 4:30pm
In this talk we discuss the defocusing, cubic nonlinear wave equation. We prove scattering for radially symmetric, nearly sharp initial data. We do not assume an a priori bound on the critical norm. We prove this by studying the wave equation in hyperbolic coordinates.
