The ADM mass of asymptotically flat hypersurfaces  [PDF]
Levi Lopes de Lima,Frederico Gir?o
Mathematics , 2011,
Abstract: We provide integral formulae for the ADM mass of asymptotically flat hypersurfaces in Riemannian manifolds with a certain warped product structure in a neighborhood of infinity, thus extending Lam's recent results on Euclidean graphs to this broader context. As applications we exhibit, in any dimension, new classes of manifolds for which versions of the Positive Mass and Riemannian Penrose inequalities hold and discuss a notion of quasi-local mass in this setting. The proof explores a novel connection between the co-vector defining the ADM mass of a hypersurface as above and the Newton tensor associated to its shape operator, which takes place in the presence of an ambient Killing field.
Foliation by Constant Mean Curvature Spheres on Asymptotically Flat Manifolds  [PDF]
Rugang Ye
Mathematics , 1997,
Abstract: In this paper, the existence and uniqueness of foliations by constant mean curvature spheres on asymptotically flat manifolds of nonzero ADM mass in all dimensions were established. (A similar result in the case of positive mass was obtained independently by G. Huisken and S. T. Yau, see the introduction of this paper and their paper in Inv. Math.)
Yamabe metrics on cylindrical manifolds  [PDF]
Kazuo Akutagawa,Boris Botvinnik
Physics , 2001,
Abstract: We study a particular class of open manifolds. In the category of Riemannian manifolds these are complete manifolds with cylindrical ends. We give a natural setting for the conformal geometry on such manifolds including an appropriate notion of the cylindrical Yamabe constant/invariant. This leads to a corresponding version of the Yamabe problem on cylindrical manifolds. We affirmatively solve this Yamabe problem: we prove the existence of minimizing metrics and analyze their singularities near infinity. These singularities turn out to be of very particular type: either almost conical or almost cusp singularities. We describe the supremum case, i.e. when the cylindrical Yamabe constant is equal to the Yamabe invariant of the sphere. We prove that in this case such a cylindrical manifold coincides conformally with the standard sphere punctured at a finite number of points. In the course of studying the supremum case, we establish a Positive Mass Theorem for specific asymptotically flat manifolds with two almost conical singularities. As a by-product, we revisit known results on surgery and the Yamabe invariant. Key words: manifolds with cylindrical ends, Yamabe constant/invariant, Yamabe problem, conical metric singularities, cusp metric singularities, Positive Mass Theorem, surgery and Yamabe invariant.
A positive mass theorem for asymptotically flat manifolds with a non-compact boundary  [PDF]
Sergio Almaraz,Ezequiel Barbosa,Levi Lopes de Lima
Mathematics , 2014,
Abstract: We prove a positive mass theorem for $n$-dimensional asymptotically flat manifolds with a non-compact boundary if either $3\leq n\leq 7$ or if $n\geq 3$ and the manifold is spin. This settles, for this class of manifolds, a question posed in a recent paper by the first author in connection with the long-term behavior of a certain Yamabe-type flow on scalar-flat compact manifolds with boundary.
The isometry groups of asymptotically flat, asymptotically empty space-times with timelike ADM four-momentum  [PDF]
R. Beig,P. T. Chru?ciel
Physics , 1996, DOI: 10.1007/s002200050180
Abstract: We give a complete classification of all connected isometry groups, together with their actions in the asymptotic region, in asymptotically flat, asymptotically vacuum space--times with timelike ADM four--momentum.
The Glassey conjecture on asymptotically flat manifolds  [PDF]
Chengbo Wang
Mathematics , 2013, DOI: 10.1090/S0002-9947-2014-06423-4
Abstract: We verify the 3-dimensional Glassey conjecture on asymptotically flat manifolds $(R^{1+3}, g)$, where the metric $g$ is certain small space-time perturbation of the flat metric, as well as the nontrapping asymptotically Euclidean manifolds. Moreover, for radial asymptotically flat manifolds $(R^{1+n}, g)$ with $n\ge 3$, we verify the Glassey conjecture in the radial case. High dimensional wave equations with higher regularity are also discussed. The main idea is to exploit local energy and KSS estimates with variable coefficients, together with the weighted Sobolev estimates including trace estimates.
Curvature Estimates in Asymptotically Flat Lorentzian Manifolds  [PDF]
Felix Finster,Margarita Kraus
Mathematics , 2003, DOI: 10.4153/CJM-2005-028-6
Abstract: We consider an asymptotically flat Lorentzian manifold of dimension (1,3). An inequality is derived which bounds the Riemannian curvature tensor in terms of the ADM energy in the general case with second fundamental form. The inequality quantifies in which sense the Lorentzian manifold becomes flat in the limit when the ADM energy tends to zero.
Static potentials on asymptotically flat manifolds  [PDF]
Pengzi Miao,Luen-fai Tam
Mathematics , 2014, DOI: 10.1007/s00023-014-0373-x
Abstract: We consider the question whether a static potential on an asymptotically flat 3-manifold can have nonempty zero set which extends to the infinity. We prove that this does not occur if the metric is asymptotically Schwarzschild with nonzero mass. If the asymptotic assumption is relaxed to the usual assumption under which the total mass is defined, we prove that the static potential is unique up to scaling unless the manifold is flat. We also provide some discussion concerning the rigidity of complete asymptotically flat 3-manifolds without boundary that admit a static potential.
A fully nonlinear version of the Yamabe problem on locally conformally flat manifolds with umbilic boundary  [PDF]
YanYan Li,Luc Nguyen
Mathematics , 2009,
Abstract: In this paper we establish existence and compactness of solutions to a general fully nonlinear version of the Yamabe problem on locally conformally flat Riemannian manifolds with umbilic boundary.
Rough solutions of the Einstein Constraint Equations on Asymptotically Flat Manifolds without Near-CMC Conditions  [PDF]
A. Behzadan,M. Holst
Mathematics , 2015,
Abstract: In this article we consider the conformal decomposition of the Einstein constraint equations introduced by Lichnerowicz, Choquet-Bruhat, and York, on asymptotically flat (AF) manifolds. Using the non-CMC fixed-point framework developed in 2009 by Holst, Nagy, and Tsogtgerel and by Maxwell, we establish existence of coupled non-CMC weak solutions for AF manifolds. As is the case for the analogous existence results for non-CMC solutions on closed manifolds and compact manifolds with boundary, our results here avoid the near-CMC assumption by assuming that the freely specifiable part of the data given by the traceless-transverse part of the rescaled extrinsic curvature and the matter fields are sufficiently small. The non-CMC rough solutions results here for AF manifolds may be viewed as extending to AF manifolds the 2009 and 2014 results on rough far-from-CMC positive Yamabe solutions for closed and compact manifolds with boundary. Similarly, our results may be viewed as extending the recent 2014 results for AF manifolds of Dilts, Isenberg, Mazzeo and Meier, and of Holst and Meier; while their results are restricted to smoother background metrics and data, the results here allow the regularity to be extended down to the minimum regularity allowed by the background metric and the matter, further completing the rough solution program initiated by Maxwell and Choquet-Bruhat in 2004.
