Continuity Properties of the Solution Map for the Generalized Reduced Ostrovsky Equation

Doctoral Dissertation


It is shown that the data-to-solution map for the generalized reduced Ostrovsky (gRO) equation is not uniformly continuous on bounded sets in Sobolev spaces on the circle with exponent s > 3/2. Considering that for this range of exponents the gRO equation is well-posed with continuous dependence on initial data, this result makes the continuity of the solution map an optimal property. However, if a weaker Hr- topology is used then it is shown that the solution map becomes Hölder continuous in Hs.
