Equations of the form

$i\partial _{t}u+\Delta u=Q(u,{\overline {u}})$ which $Q(u,{\overline {u}})$ a quadratic function of its arguments are quadratic nonlinear Schrodinger equations.

• Scaling is $s_{c}=-3/2\,.$ • For any quadratic non-linearity one can obtain LWP for $s\geq 0\,$ CaWe1990, Ts1987.
• If the quadratic non-linearity is of ${\underline {uu}}\,$ or $uu\,$ type then one can push LWP to $s>-3/4.\,$ KnPoVe1996b.
• This can be improved to the Besov space $B_{2,1}^{-3/4}\,$ MurTao2004. The $X^{s,b}\,$ bilinear estimates fail for $H^{-3/4}\,$ NaTkTs2001.
• If the quadratic non-linearity is of ${\underline {u}}u\,$ type then one can push LWP to $s>-1/4.\,$ KnPoVe1996b.
• Since these equations do not have $L^{2}\,$ conservation it is not clear whether there is any reasonable GWP result, except possibly for very small data.
• If the non-linearity is $|u|u\,$ then there is GWP in $L^{2}\,$ thanks to $L^{2}\,$ conservation, and ill-posedness below $L^{2}\,$ by Gallilean invariance considerations in both the focusing KnPoVe-p and defocusing CtCoTa-p2 cases.

#### Quadratic NLS on $T$ • For any quadratic non-linearity one can obtain LWP for $s\geq 0\,$ Bo1993. In the Hamiltonian case ($|u|u\,$ ) this is sharp by Gallilean invariance considerations KnPoVe-p
• If the quadratic non-linearity is of ${\underline {uu}}\,$ or $uu\,$ type then one can push LWP to $s>-1/2.\,$ KnPoVe1996b.
• In the Hamiltonian case (a non-linearity of type $|u|u\,$ ) we have GWP for $s\geq 0\,$ by $L^{2}\,$ conservation. In the other cases it is not clear whether there is any reasonable GWP result, except possibly for very small data.

#### Quadratic NLS on $R^{2}$ • Scaling $s_{c}=-1.\,$ • For any quadratic non-linearity one can obtain LWP for $s\geq 0\,$ CaWe1990, Ts1987.
• In the Hamiltonian case ($|u|u\,$ ) this is sharp by Gallilean invariance considerations KnPoVe-p
• If the quadratic non-linearity is of ${\underline {uu}}\,$ or $uu\,$ type then one can push LWP to $s>-3/4.\,$ St1997, CoDeKnSt2001.
• This can be improved to the Besov space $B_{2,1}^{-3/4}\,$ MurTao2004.
• If the quadratic non-linearity is of $u{\underline {u}}\,$ type then one can push LWP to $s>-1/4.\,$ Ta2001.
• In the Hamiltonian case (a non-linearity of type $|u|u\,$ ) we have GWP for $s\geq 0\,$ by $L^{2}\,$ conservation. In the other cases it is not clear whether there is any reasonable GWP result, except possibly for very small data.
• Below $L^{2}\,$ we have ill-posedness by Gallilean invariance considerations in both the focusing KnPoVe-p and defocusing CtCoTa-p2 cases.

• If the quadratic non-linearity is of ${\underline {uu}}\,$ type then one can obtain LWP for $s>-1/2\,$ Gr-p2

#### Quadratic NLS on $R^{3}$ • Scaling is $s_{c}=-1/2.\,$ • For any quadratic non-linearity one can obtain LWP for $s\geq 0\,$ CaWe1990, Ts1987.
• If the quadratic non-linearity is of ${\underline {uu}}\,$ or $uu\,$ type then one can push LWP to $s>-1/2.\,$ St1997, CoDeKnSt2001.
• If the quadratic non-linearity is of $u{\underline {u}}\,$ type then one can push LWP to $s>-1/4.\,$ Ta2001.
