Mercoledì 25 Gennaio 2017 alle ore 12:15 in Aula 2BC30, Enrico Serra (Politecnico di Torino) terrà un seminario dal titolo “Nonlinear Schrödinger ground states on metric graphs: the $L^2$-critical case”.

We investigate the existence of ground states with prescribed mass for the focusing nonlinear Schrödinger equation with $L^2$-critical power nonlinearity on noncompact quantum graphs. We prove that, unlike the case of the real line, for certain classes of graphs there exist ground states with negative energy for a whole interval of masses. A key role is played by a thorough analysis of Gagliardo-Nirenberg inequalities and by estimates of the optimal constants. Most of the techniques are new and suited to the investigation of variational problems on metric graphs.
