We review the recently developed program for constructing and studying solutions of the Einstein constraint equations using gluing techniques. We discuss what we believe are sharp conditions sufficient for a pair of solutions to admit gluing via a connected sum or “wormhole”, and describe how one carries out the gluing. We also discuss a number of useful… CONTINUE READING
