On mapping properties of the general relativistic constraints operator in weighted function spaces, with applications

Abstract:

Generalising an analysis of Corvino and Schoen, we study surjectivity properties of the constraint map in general relativity in a large class of weighted Sobolev spaces. As a corollary we prove several perturbation, gluing, and extension results: we show existence of non-trivial, singularity-free, vacuum space-times which are stationary in a neighborhood of $i^0$; for small perturbations of parity-covariant initial data sufficiently close to those for Minkowski space-time this leads to space-...
