Stability of the Cubic Nonlinear Schrodinger Equation on Irrational Tori

By Gigliola Staffilani and Bobby Wilson


A characteristic of the defocusing cubic nonlinear Schr\"odinger equation (NLSE), when defined so that the space variable is the multi-dimensional square (hence rational) torus, is that there exist solutions that start with arbitrarily small norms Sobolev norms and evolve to develop arbitrarily large modes at later times; this phenomenon is recognized as a weak energy transfer to high modes for the NLSE. In this paper, we show that when the system is considered on an irrational torus, energy transfer is more difficult to detect
