We study the Cauchy problem of the nonlinear fourth-order Schrödinger equation with mass-critical nonlinearity and derivative: <a onClick="popup('http://www.boundaryvalueproblems.com/content/2014/1/90/mathml/M1','MathML',630,470);return false;" target="_blank" href="http://www.boundaryvalueproblems.com/content/2014/1/90/mathml/M1">View MathML</a>, <a onClick="popup('http://www.boundaryvalueproblems.com/content/2014/1/90/mathml/M2','MathML',630,470);return false;" target="_blank" href="http://www.boundaryvalueproblems.com/content/2014/1/90/mathml/M2">View MathML</a>, <a onClick="popup('http://www.boundaryvalueproblems.com/content/2014/1/90/mathml/M3','MathML',630,470);return false;" target="_blank" href="http://www.boundaryvalueproblems.com/content/2014/1/90/mathml/M3">View MathML</a>, where a, b, and c are real numbers. We obtain the local well-posedness for the Cauchy problem with low regularity initial value data by the Fourier restriction norm method.
