Existence and stability of a solution blowing up on a sphere for an -supercritical nonlinear Schrödinger equation
We consider the quintic two-dimensional focusing nonlinear Schrödinger equation which is -supercritical. Even though the existence of finite-time blow-up solutions in the energy space is known, very little is understood concerning the singularity formation. Numerics suggest the existence of a stable blow-up dynamic corresponding to a self-similar blowup at one point in space. We prove the existence of a different type of dynamic and exhibit an open set among the -radial distributions of initial data for which the corresponding solution blows up in finite time on a sphere. This is the first result of an explicit description of a blow-up dynamic in the -supercritical setting
