In this article, we give an overview of some recent developments in Littlewood-Paley theory for Schrödinger operators. We extend the Littlewood-Paley theory for special potentials considered in our previous work [J. Fourier Anal. Appl. 12 (2006), no. 6, 653–674; MR2275390]. We elaborate our approach by considering a potential in C0 or the Schwartz class in one dimension. In particular, the low energy estimates are treated by establishing some new and refined asymptotics for the eigenfunctions and their Fourier transforms. We give a maximal function characterization of the Besov spaces and Triebel-Lizorkin spaces associated with H. Then we prove a spectral multiplier theorem on these spaces and derive Strichartz estimates for the wave equation with a potential. We also consider a similar problem for the unbounded potentials in the Hermite and Laguerre cases, whose potentials V=a|x|2+b|x|−2 are known to be critical in the study of perturbation of nonlinear dispersive equations. This improves upon the previous results when we apply the upper Gaussian bound for the heat kernel and its gradient.
