Abstract: The aim of the paper is to develop the Fourier Analysis techniques needed in the study of optimal well-posedness and global regularity properties of the Yang-Mills equations in Minkowski space-time , for the case of the critical dimension . We introduce new functional spaces and prove new bilinear estimates for solutions of the homogeneous wave equation, which can be viewed as generalizations of the well-known Strichartz-Pecher inequalities.
