Addendum to the article: On the Dirichlet to Neumann Problem for the 1-dimensional Cubic NLS Equation on the Half-LineWe present a short note on the extension of the results of  to the case of non-zero initial data. More specifically, the defocusing cubic NLS equation is considered on the half-line with decaying (in time) Dirichlet data and sufficiently smooth and decaying (in space) initial data. We prove that for this case also, and for a large class of decaying Dirichlet data, the Neumann data are sufficiently decaying so that the Fokas unified method for the solution of defocusing NLS is applicable.
On the Dirichlet to Neumann Problem for the 1-dimensional Cubic NLS Equation on the half-lineInitial-boundary value problems for 1-dimensional `completely integrable' equations can be solved via an extension of the inverse scattering method, which is due to Fokas and his collaborators. A crucial feature of this method is that it requires the values of more boundary data than given for a well-posed problem. In the case of cubic NLS, knowledge of the Dirichet data su ces to make the problem well-posed but the Fokas method also requires knowledge of the values of Neumann data. The study of the Dirichlet to Neumann map is thus necessary before the application of the `Fokas transform'. In this paper, we provide a rigorous study of this map for a large class of decaying Dirichlet data. We show that the Neumann data are also su ciently decaying and that, hence, the Fokas method can be applied.
