Strichartz estimates for Schrödinger equations with variable coefficients and potentials at most linear at spatial infinity


Full-text: Open access


In the present paper we consider Schrödinger equations with variable coefficients and potentials, where the principal part is a long-range perturbation of the flat Laplacian and potentials have at most linear growth at spatial infinity. We then prove local-in-time Strichartz estimates, outside a large compact set centered at origin, without loss of derivatives. Moreover we also prove global-in-space Strichartz estimates under the non-trapping condition on the Hamilton flow generated by the kinetic energy.
