We consider some inverse acoustic scattering problems. For the purpose, we derive the factorization method, which is a sampling method for solving certain kinds of inverse problems where the shape and location of unknown objects have to be reconstructed. Here, we introduce new results related to the factorization method.
We study the Cauchy problem of the linear damped wave equation and give sharp $L^p$-$L^q$ estimates of the solution. This is an improvement of the so-called Matsumura estimates. Moreover, as its application, we consider the nonlinear problem with slowly decaying initial data, and determine the critical exponent. In particular, we prove that the small data global existence holds in the critical case if the initial data does not belong to $L^1$. This talk is based on a joint work with Masahiro Ikeda (RIKEN), Mamoru Okamoto (Shinshu University), and Takahisa Inui (Osaka University).
We study the periodic traveling wave solutions of the derivative nonlinear Schrödinger equation (DNLS). It is known that (DNLS) has two types of solitons on the whole line; one has exponential decay and the other has algebraic decay. The latter corresponds to the soliton for the massless case. In the new global results recently obtained by Fukaya, Hayashi and Inui, the properties of two-parameter of the solitons are essentially used in the proof, and especially the soliton for the massless case plays an important role. To investigate further properties of the solitons, we construct exact periodic traveling wave solutions which yield the solitons on the whole line including the massless case in the long-period limit. Moreover, we study the regularity of the convergence of these exact solutions in the long-period limit.
In this talk I will focus on the asymptotic behavior of nonsmooth radial solutions of semilinear Schrödinger equations with a barely supercritical nonlinearity (i.e a nonlinearity that grows faster than the critical power but not faster than a logarithm). It is known that we have scattering of smooth radial solutions of defocusing loglog energy-supercritical Schrödinger equations. I will recall the techniques used to prove this result. Then I will explain how we can use Jensen-type inequalities to prove scattering of nonsmooth radial solutions of defocusing loglog energy-supercritical Schrödinger equations.
In this talk, I will discuss about a critical exponent for semilinear wave equations with time-dependent damping. When the damping is “effective,” it is Fujita exponent which is known to be the one for semilinear heat equations. Recently, by showing a sub-critical blow-up result, I have introduced a new conjecture that it is Strauss exponent which is known to be one for semilinear wave equations as far as the damping is “scattering.” I will also discuss about other nonlinearities and an intermediate situation, namely, the scaling invariant case. All the results in this talk are joint works with Ning-An Lai (Lishui University, China).
