### Conserved Positive Charge for a PDE

Let $(x,t) \in \mathbb{R}^2$ and consider the following partial differential equation for the real-valued function $U(x,t)$: \frac{\partial^2 U}{\partial t^2} = - \frac{\hbar^2}{4m^2} ...

### Example of a function satisfying certain conditions on its derivatives

I am searching for examples of a non-negative function $f \in C^1((0,1];C^\infty _b(\mathbb{R}^n))$ (where $C^\infty _b(\mathbb{R}^n)$ is set of all smooth functions with bounded derivatives, $f(t,x)$ ...

### For every table of interpolating nodes, there is a positive continuous function whose interpolating polynomials are not positive infinitely often

Fix an interval $[a,b]$. Is it true that for every table of interpolating nodes $\{x_{0,n},x_{1,n}...,x_{n,n}\}_{n=1}^{\infty}$, there exists a continuous function $f:[a,b]\to (0,\infty)$ such that ...

### Is $X = \{ B \in L^\infty(\mathbb R^n,\mathbb R^n): \nabla \cdot B \in L^\infty(\mathbb R^n,\mathbb R^n) \}$ a dense subspace?

The Sobolev space $W^{1,\infty}(\mathbb R^n,\mathbb R^n)$ is not dense in $L^\infty(\mathbb R^n,\mathbb R^n)$. In fact the functions in $W^{1,\infty}(\mathbb R^n,\mathbb R^n)$ are Lipshitz, and not ...

### For which $n$, can we find a sequence of $n+1$ distinct points s.t. the interpolating polynomial of every +ve continuous function is itself +ve

Fix an interval $[a,b]$. For which integers $n>1$, does there exist $n+1$ distinct points $\{x_0,x_1,...,x_n\}$ in $[a,b]$ such that for every continuous function $f:[a,b] \to (0,\infty)$, the ...

### Does every positive continuous function have a non-negative interpolating polynomial of every degree?

Let $f:[a,b] \to (0,\infty)$ be a continuous function. Then is it necessarily true that for every $n\ge 1$, we can find $n+1$ distinct points $\{x_0,x_1,...,x_n\}$ in $[a,b]$ such that the ...

### Unboundedness of the Sobolev norm of a sequence : Does it follow from Sobolev embedding?

Let $\{f_n\}$ be a sequence of functions that are continuous and lying in $H^k(\mathbb{R}^m)$. Assuming $k>\frac{m}{2}$, and if $f_n \to f$ pointwise, where $f\in H^k(\mathbb{R}^m)$, such that $f$ ...

### $L^{\infty}-L^{\infty}$ estimates on the Schrödinger evolution

A classical estimate for solutions to Schrödinger equations are $L^1-L^{\infty}$ estimates, also known as dispersive estimates. I wonder whether there are also $L^{\infty}-L^{\infty}$ estimates? ...

### Strict positive type function on hypersurface also of positive type in neighborhood?

Let $u\in C^\infty(\mathbb{R}^n\times\mathbb{R}^n)$ be symmetric and of strictly positive type on some hypersurface $S \subset \mathbb{R}^n$ diffeomorphic to $\{0\}\times\mathbb{R}^{n-1}$. This means ...
