Abstract: In this article we consider the Cauchy problem with large initial data for an equation of the form

$\displaystyle (\partial _t+\partial _x^3)u=F(u,u_x,u_{xx})$

where $ F$ is a polynomial with no constant or linear terms. Local well-posedness was established in weighted Sobolev spaces by Kenig-Ponce-Vega. In this paper we prove local well-posedness in a translation invariant subspace of $ H^s$ by adapting the result of Marzuola-Metcalfe-Tataru on quasilinear Schrödinger equations.
