We consider maximal globally hyperbolic flat (2+1) spacetimes with compact space S of genus g > 1. For any spacetime M of this type, the length of time that the events have been in existence is M defines a global time, called the cosmological time CT of M , which reveals deep intrinsic properties of spacetime. In particular, the past/future asymptotic states of the cosmological time recover and decouple the linear and the translational parts of the ISO(2, 1)-valued holonomy of the flat… CONTINUE READING
