Vacuum constraint equations for asymptotically flat space-times with a translational Killing field
Lundi, 17 Mars, 2014 - 13:30
Résumé : 

 In the presence of a space-like translational Killing field, vacuum Einstein equations in 3+1 dimensions reduces to 2+1 Einstein equations with a scalar field. Minkowski space-time is a trivial solution of vacuum Einstein equation with a translational Killing field. A natural question is therefore the nonlinear stability of Minkowski solution in this setting. A first step in addressing this problem is the study of the constraint equations. The main difficulty in that case is due to the delicate inversion of the Laplacian. In particular, we have to work in the non constant mean curvature setting, which enforces us to consider the intricate coupling of the Einstein constraint equations.
