Abstract: We study the Cauchy problem for the modified KdV equation

$\displaystyle u_t + u_{xxx} + (u^3)_x = 0, \hspace{2cm} u(0)=u_0$

for data $ u_0$ in the space $ \widehat{H_s^r}$ defined by the norm

$\displaystyle \Vert u_0\Vert _{\widehat{H_s^r}} := \Vert\langle \xi \rangle ^s\widehat{u_0}\Vert _{L^{r'}_{\xi}}.$

Local well-posedness of this problem is established in the parameter range $ 2 \ge r >1$, $ s \ge \frac{1}{2} - \frac{1}{2r}$, so the case $ (s,r)=(0,1)$, which is critical in view of scaling considerations, is almost reached. To show this result, we use an appropriate variant of the Fourier restriction norm method as well as bi- and trilinear estimates for solutions of the Airy equation.
