We obtain some improved essentially sharp Kakeya-Nikodym estimates for eigenfunctions in two-dimensions. We obtain these by proving stronger related microlocal estimates involving a natural decomposition of phase space that is adapted to the geodesic flow.

We prove families of uniform $(L^r,L^s)$ resolvent estimates for simply connected manifolds of constant curvature (negative or positive) that imply the earlier ones for Euclidean space of Kenig, Ruiz and the second author \cite{KRS}. In the case of the sphere we take advantage of the fact that the half-wave group of the natural shifted Laplacian is periodic. In the case of hyperbolic space, the key ingredient is a natural variant of the Stein-Tomas restriction theorem.

In this note we show how improved $L^p$-estimates for certain types of quasi-modes are naturally equaivalent to improved operator norms of spectral projection operators associated to shrinking spectral intervals of the appropriate scale. Using this, one can see that recent estimates that were stated for eigenfunctions also hold for the appropriate types of quasi-modes.

We use the Gauss-Bonnet theorem and the triangle comparison theorems of Rauch and Toponogov to show that on compact Riemann surfaces of negative curvature period integrals of eigenfunctions $e_\lambda$ over geodesics go to zero at the rate of $O((\log\lambda)^{-1/2})$ if $\lambda$ are their frequencies. As discussed in \cite{CSPer}, no such result is possible in the constant curvature case if the curvature is $\ge0$. Notwithstanding, we also show that these bounds for period integrals are valid...

We use a straightforward variation on a recent argument of Hezari and Rivi\`ere~\cite{HR} to obtain localized $L^p$-estimates for all exponents larger than or equal to the critical exponent $p_c=\tfrac{2(n+1)}{n-1}$. We are able to this directly by just using the $L^{p}$-bounds for spectral projection operators from our much earlier work \cite{Seig}. The localized bounds we obtain here imply, for instance, that, for a density one sequence of eigenvalues on a manifold whose geodesic flow is...

We study the interior nodal sets, $Z_\lambda$ of Steklov eigenfunctions in an $n$-dimensional relatively compact manifolds $M$ with boundary and show that one has the lower bounds $|Z_\lambda|\ge c\lambda^{\frac{2-n}2}$ for the size of its $(n-1)$-dimensional Hausdorff measure. The proof is based on a Dong-type identity and estimates for the gradient of Steklov eigenfunctions, similar to those in \cite{SZ1} and \cite{SZ2}, respectively.

But of course, it is not sharp for many Riemannian manifolds, e.g. flat tori $\R^n/\Gamma$. We say that $S^n$, but not...

We show the obstacle version of the Strauss conjecture holds when the spatial dimension is equal to 4. We also show that an almost global existence theorem of H\"ormander for (4+1)-dimensional Minkowski space holds in the obstacle setting. We use weighed space-time variants of the energy inequality and a variant of the classical Hardy inequality.

We establish the Strauss conjecture for nontrapping obstacles when the spatial dimension $n$ is two. As pointed out in \cite{HMSSZ} this case is more subtle than $n=3$ or 4 due to the fact that the arguments of the first two authors \cite{SmSo00}, Burq \cite{B} and Metcalfe \cite{M} showing that local Strichartz estimates for obstactles imply global ones require that the Sobolev index, $\gamma$, equal 1/2 when $n=2$. We overcome this difficulty by interpolating between energy estimates ($\gamma...

In this paper we prove global and almost global existence theorems for nonlinear wave equations with quadratic nonlinearities in infinite homogeneous waveguides. We can handle both the case of Dirichlet boundary conditions and Neumann boundary conditions. In the case of Neumann boundary conditions we need to assume a natural nonlinear Neumann condition on the quasilinear terms. The results that we obtain are sharp in terms of the assumptions on the dimensions for the global existence results...

We prove global existence of solutions to multiple speed, Dirichlet-wave equations with quadratic nonlinearities satisfying the null condition in the exterior of compact obstacles. This extends the result of our previous paper by allowing general higher order terms. In the currect setting, these terms are much more difficult to handle than for the free wave equation, and we do so using an analog of a pointwise estimate due to Kubota and Yokoyama.

We assume the natural null condition for systems of quasilinear wave equations with multiple speeds. The null condition only puts restrictions on the self-interactions of each wave family. We use the method of commuting vector fields and weighted space-time $L^2$ estimates.

Also, if $(M,g)$ has negative curvature and $\gamma(t)$ is a geodesic parameterized by arc length, the measures $e_j(\gamma(t))\, dt$ on $\R$ tend to zero in the sense of distributions as the eigenvalue $\la_j\to \infty$, and so integrals of eigenfunctions over periodic geodesics tend to zero as $\la_j\to \infty$.

Using the KSS estimate, we prove almost global existence for quadratically semilinear wave equations with small initial data for $\rho> 1$ and $d=3$. Also, we establish the Strauss conjecture when the metric is radial with $\rho>0$ for $d= 3$.

We prove global existence for quasilinear wave equations outside of a wide class of obstacles. The obstacles may contain trapped hyperbolic rays as long as there is local exponential energy decay for the associated linear wave equation. Thus, we can handle all non-trapping obstacles. We are also able to handle non-diagonal systems satisfying the appropriate null condition.

This generalizes a result of Shibata and Tsutsumi in spatial dimensions greater than or equal to six. The technique of proof would allow for more complicated geometries provided that an appropriate local energy decay exists for the associated linear wave equation.

In particular, we obtain exterior domain analogs of the four dimensional results of H\"ormander where the nonlinearity is permitted to depend on the solution not just its first and second derivatives. Previous proofs in exterior domains omitted this dependence as it did not mesh well with the energy methods in use.

The authors show that bilinear estimates for null forms hold for Dirichlet-wave equations outside of convex obstacle. This generalizes results for the Euclidean case of Klainerman and Machedon, and of Sogge for the variable coefficient boundaryless case. The estimates are used to prove a local existence theorem for semilinear wave equations satisfying the null condition.

Let $\ncal_{\phi_{\lambda}}$ be the nodal hypersurface of a $\Delta$-eigenfunction $\phi_{\lambda}$ of eigenvalue $\lambda^2$ on a smooth Riemannian manifold. We prove the following lower bound for its surface measure: $\hcal^{n-1}(\ncal_{\phi_{\lambda}}) \geq C \lambda^{\frac74-\frac{3n}4} $. The best prior lower bound appears to be $e^{- C \lambda}$.

We shall be concerned with the Cauchy problem for quasilinear systems in three space dimensions of the form \label{i.1} \partial^2_tu^I-c^2_I\Delta u^I = C^{IJK}_{abc}\partial_c u^J\partial_a\partial_b u^K + B^{IJK}_{ab}\partial_a u^J\partial_b u^K, \quad I=1,..., D. Here we are using the convention of summing repeated indices, and $\partial u$ denotes the space-time gradient, $\partial u=(\partial_0 u, \partial_1 u, \partial_2 u, \partial_3u)$, with $\partial_0=\partial_t$, and...

The purpose of this paper is to give a simple proof of sharp $L^\infty$ estimates for the eigenfunctions of the Dirichlet Laplacian on smooth compact Riemannian manifolds $(M,g)$ of dimension $n\ge 2$ with boundary $\partial M$ and then to use these estimates to prove new estimates for Bochner Riesz means in this setting. Our eigenfunction estimates involve estimating the $L^2\to L^\infty$ mapping properties of the operators $\chi_\lambda$ which project onto unit bands of the spectrum of the...

We prove sharp bilinear estimates for Dirichlet or Neumann eigenfunctions in domains in the plane. These are the natural analog of earlier estimates for the boundaryless case of Burq, G\'erard, and Tzvetkov.

We provide a proof of global existence of solutions to quasilinear wave equations satisfying the null condition in certain exterior domains. In particular, our proof does not require estimation of the fundamental solution for the free wave equation. We instead rely upon a class of Keel-Smith-Sogge estimates for the perturbed wave equation. Using this, a notable simplification is made as compared to previous works concerning wave equations in exterior domains: one no longer needs to distinguish...

We use microlocal and paradifferential techniques to obtain $L^8$ norm bounds for spectral clusters associated to elliptic second order operators on two-dimensional manifolds with boundary. The result leads to optimal $L^q$ bounds, in the range $2\le q\le\infty$, for $L^2$-normalized spectral clusters on bounded domains in the plane and, more generally, for two-dimensional compact manifolds with boundary. We also establish new sharp $L^q$ estimates in higher dimensions for a range of exponents...

We prove almost global existence for semilinear wave equations outside of nontrapping obstacles. We use the vector field method, but only use the generators of translations and Euclidean rotations. Our method exploits 1/r decay of wave equations, as opposed to the much harder to prove 1/t decay.

We prove local Strichartz estimates on compact manifolds with boundary. Our results also apply more generally to compact manifolds with Lipschitz metrics.

We examine solutions to semilinear wave equations on black hole backgrounds and give a proof of an analog of the Strauss conjecture on the Schwarzschild and Kerr, with small angular momentum, black hole backgrounds. The key estimates are a class of weighted Strichartz estimates, which are used near infinity where the metrics can be viewed as small perturbations of the Minkowski metric, and a localized energy estimate on the black hole background, which handles the behavior in the remaining...

We prove a natural inequality which implies the known lower bounds for the $(n-1)$-dimensional Hausdorff measure of nodal sets for smooth compact manifolds.
