Patrick Gerard, Long time estimates of solutions to Hamiltonian nonlinear PDEs:

This minicourse is devoted to long time behavior of solutions to nonlinear PDE’s such as nonlinear Schroedinger equation or nonlinear wave equations. More precisely, we would like to provide an introduction to the following general question, closely connected to wave turbulence: assume that such a nonlinear PDE is globally well-posed on high regularity Sobolev spaces; how big can the high Sobolev norms be of generic solutions as time goes to infinity? The second part of the course will be focused on the special case of the cubic Szegö equation, which is a model of a nonlinear wave evolution and enjoys some integrable structure allowing to study its solutions in detail.
