Local Well and Ill Posedness for the Modified KdV Equations in Subcritical Modulation Spaces.

Mingjuan Chen, Boling Guo

We consider the Cauchy problem of the modified KdV equation (mKdV). Local well-posedness of this problem is obtained in modulation spaces $M^{1/4}_{2,q}(\mathbb{{R}})$ $(2\leq q\leq\infty)$. Moreover, we show that the data-to-solution map fails to be $C^3$ continuous in $M^{s}_{2,q}(\mathbb{{R}})$ when $s<1/4$. It is well-known that $H^{1/4}$ is a critical Sobolev space of mKdV so that it is well-posedness in $H^s$ for $s\geq 1/4$ and ill-posed (in the sense of uniform continuity) in $H^{s'}$ with $s'<1/4$. Noticing that $M^{1/4}_{2,q} \subset B^{1/q-1/4}_{2,q}$ is a sharp embedding and $H^{-1/4}\subset B^{-1/4}_{2,\infty}$, our results contains all of the subcritical data in $M^{1/4}_{2,q}$, which contains a class of functions in $H^{-1/4}\setminus H^{1/4}$.
