We study behavior of solutions to the nonlinear generalized Hartree equation, where the nonlinearity is of nonlocal type and is expressed as a convolution
Our main goal is to understand global behavior of solutions of this equation in various settings. In this work we make an initial attempt towards this goal and study (finite energy) solutions. We first investigate the local well-posedness and small data theory. We then, in the intercritical regime (), classify the behavior of solutions under the mass-energy assumption , identifying the sharp threshold for global versus finite time solutions via the sharp constant of the corresponding convolution type Gagliardo–Nirenberg interpolation inequality (note that the uniqueness of a ground state is not known in the general case). In particular, depending on the size of the initial mass and gradient, solutions will either exist for all time and scatter in , or blow up in finite time, or diverge along an infinite time sequence. To obtain scattering or divergence to infinity, in this paper we employ the well-known concentration compactness and rigidity method of Kenig and Merle  with the novelty of studying the nonlocal, convolution nonlinearity.
