Abstract: We study dispersion for the defocusing gKdV equation. It is expected that it is not possible for the bulk of the $ L^2-$mass to concentrate in a small interval for a long time. We study a variance-type functional exploiting Tao's monotonicity formula in the spirit of earlier work by Tao, as well as Kwon and Shao, and quantify its growth in terms of sublevel estimates.
