Abstract: We discuss results regarding global existence of solutions for the critical generalized Korteweg-de Vries equation,

The theory established shows the existence of global solutions in Sobolev spaces with order below the one given by the energy space , i.e. solutions corresponding to data , , with , where is the solitary wave solution of the equation.
