This thesis is divided into two parts. The first part consists of Chapters 2 and 3, in which we study the random data theory for the Benjamin-Ono equation on the periodic domain. In Chapter 2 we shall prove the invariance of the Gibbs measure associated to the Hamiltonian E1 of the equation, which was constructed in . Despite the fact that the support of the Gibbs measure contains very rough functions that are not even in L2, we have successfully established the global dynamics by combining probabilistic arguments, Xs,b type estimates and the hidden structure of the equation. In Chapter 3, which is joint work with N. Tzvetkov and N. Visciglia, we extend this invariance result to the weighted Gaussian measures associated with the higher order conservation laws E2 and E3, thus completing the collection of invariant measures (except for the white noise), given the result of .
The second part concerns the global behavior of solutions to quasilinear dispersive systems in Rd with suitably small data. In Chapter 4 we shall prove global existence and scattering for small data solutions to systems of quasilinear Klein-Gordon equations with arbitrary speed and mass in 3 D, which extends the results in  and . Moreover, the methods introduced here are quite general, and can be applied in a number of different situations. In Chapter 5, we briefly discuss how these methods, together with other techniques, are used in recent joint work with A. Ionescu and B. Pausader to study the 2D Euler-Maxwell system.
