# Global well-posedness for a periodic nonlinear Schrödinger equation in 1D and 2D

• The initial value problem for the $L^{2}$ critical semilinear Schrödinger equation with periodic boundary data is considered. We show that the problem is globally well-posed in $H^{s}( T^{d} )$, for $s>4/9$ and $s>2/3$ in 1D and 2D respectively, confirming in 2D a statement of Bourgain in [4]. We use the "$I$-method''. This method allows one to introduce a modification of the energy functional that is well defined for initial data below the $H^{1}(T^{d} )$ threshold. The main ingredient in the proof is a "refinement" of the Strichartz's estimates that hold true for solutions defined on the rescaled space, $T^{d}_\lambda = R^{d}/{\lambda Z^{d}}$, $d=1,2$.
