Blow-up solutions for the 2-dimensional critical Schrödinger equation on a riemannian manifold

Abstract : The present work aims at investigating the effects of a non-euclidean geometry on existence and uniqueness results for critical blow up NLS solutions. We will use many ideas from the works of Merle and Raphaël, particularly ideas from modulation theory which describes a solution in terms of geometric invariants parameters. We will rely more specically on a paper from Raphaël and Szeftel for existence and uniqueness of a critical mass blow up solution in dimension two tothe nonlinear Schrödinger equation with inhomogeneous potential acting on the nonlinearity, and which blows up where the inhomogeneity reaches its maximum. At first, we consider a generalized Laplacian operator and deploy the classical ansatz method to point out difficulties inherited from the non-flat metric terms, and in particular the key role played by the curvature at the blow-up point. In a second part, we reproduce the method when modifying the geometrical ansatz on which the parametrix is constructed, and investigate more precisely what is needed for existence and then uniqueness when dealing with a Laplace-Beltrami operator associated to a riemannian manifold. For simplicity, we shall only consider the role of g locally around the blow up point we are constructing, by assuming g is globally defined in some map, and asymptotically equals the usual euclidean metric.
