Abstract. We prove the existence of Cantor families of periodic solutions for nonlinear wave equations in higher spatial dimensions with periodic boundary conditions. We study both forced and autonomous PDEs. In the latter case, our theorems generalize previous results of Bourgain to more general nonlinearities of class $C^k$ and assuming weaker non-resonance conditions. Our solutions have Sobolev regularity both in time and space. The proofs are based on a differentiable Nash-Moser iteration scheme, where it is sufficient to get estimates of interpolation type for the inverse linearized operators. Our approach works also in the presence of very large "clusters of small divisors".
