Abstract

In this paper we study microlocal singularities of solutions to Schr\"odinger equations on scattering manifolds, i.e., noncompact Riemannian manifolds with asymptotically conic ends. We characterize the wave front set of the solutions in terms of the initial condition and the classical scattering maps under the nontrapping condition. Our result is closely related to a recent work by Hassell and Wunsch, though our model is more general and the method, which relies heavily on scattering theoretical ideas, is simple and quite different. In particular, we use an Egorov-type argument in the standard pseudodifferential symbol classes, and avoid using Legendre distributions. In the proof, we employ a microlocal smoothing property in terms of the {\it radially homogenous wave front set}, which is more precise than the preceding results.
