This is the third paper in a series of papers adressing the characteristic gluing problem for the Einstein vacuum equations. We provide full details of our characteristic gluing (including the $10$ charges) of strongly asymptotically flat data to the data of a suitably chosen Kerr spacetime. The choice of the Kerr spacetime crucially relies on relating the $10$ charges to the ADM energy, linear momentum, angular momentum and the center-of-mass. As a corollary, we obtain an alternative proof of…

The characteristic gluing problem for the Einstein equations and applications
In this paper we introduce the characteristic gluing problem for the Einstein vacuum equations. We present a codimension-10 gluing construction for characteristic initial data which are close to the
