The Property of the Solution about Cauchy Problem for Fourth-Order Schrödinger Equation with Critical Time-Oscillating Nonlinearity
We study the property of the solution in Sobolev spaces for the Cauchy problem of the following fourth-order Schrödinger equation with critical time-oscillating nonlinearity , where , , and is a periodic function. We obtain the asymptotic property of the solution for the above equation as under some conditions.
In this paper we study the Cauchy problem of the following fourth-order Schrödinger equation with a time oscillating critical nonlinearity where is a -periodic function and is a real constant. We define the solution of (1) to be .
In this paper we plan to study the behavior of as . We define to be the average value of on . Naturally, we think of the following equation:

Energy-critical fourth-order Schrödinger equations are very important equations which arise in many physical application fields [2, 3]. They have been discussed not only by physical researchers but also from mathematical viewpoint by many authors [4–8]. In particular, if the coefficient of nonlinear term is a periodic function in time, condensation and blowup phenomenon may appear from physical experiments. Naturally, from mathematical point, we will analyze why does it happen? What is the condition when condensation or blowup phenomenon appears? What is the property if condensation appears? For the Schrödinger equation, in  Fang and Han studied the Schrödinger equation with time-oscillating critical nonlinearities. They gave the asymptotic property of local solution and global solution for large frequencies (as ). As far as we know, there are few results about the asymptotic property of the solutions for the energy-critical fourth-order Schrödinger equations with periodic coefficient in time. So we will utilize the ideals and techniques of  to study the asymptotic behavior of the solution for (1) as . The difficulty of our work is how to seek power index. The index is dependent to space dimension. And the order of equation is four. This will make it more difficult to look for proper index for us. The aim of this paper is to study the property of the solution for the Cauchy problem of fourth-order Schrödinger equation with time-oscillating critical nonlinearities.
The main results of this work are the following theorems.
The succeeding section is devoted to establishing the dispersive estimates for the linear equation related to (1) and (2), and we will present the nonlinear estimates of nonlinearity. In Section 3 we present the proofs of Theorems 3 and 4.
