Abstract: The derivative nonlinear Schrödinger equation $ ($DNLS$ )$

\begin{displaymath}\begin{array}{*{20}{c}} {i{q_t} = {q_{xx}} \pm {{({q^\ast }{q... ...sqrt { - 1} ,{q^\ast }(z) = \overline {q(z)} ,} \\ \end{array} \end{displaymath}

was first derived by plasma physicists [9,10]. This equation was used to interpret the propagation of circular polarized nonlinear Alfvén waves in plasma. Kaup and Newell obtained the soliton solutions of DNLS in 1978 [5]. The author obtained the local solvability of DNLS in his dissertation [6]. In this paper we obtain global existence (in time $ t$) of Schwartz class solutions of DNLS if the $ {L^2}$-norm of the generic initial data $ q(x,0)$ is bounded.
