We prove in detail a theorem which completes the evaluation and parametrization of the space of constant mean curvature (CMC) solutions of the Einstein constraint equations on a closed manifold. This theorem determines which sets of CMC conformal data allow the constraint equations to be solved, and which sets of such data do not. The tools we describe and use here to prove these results have also been found to be useful for the study of non-constant mean curvature solutions of the Einstein… 
Near-Constant Mean Curvature Solutions of the Einstein Constraint Equations with Non-Negative Yamabe Metrics
We show that sets of conformal data on closed manifolds with the metric in the positive or zero Yamabe class, and with the gradient of the mean curvature function sufficiently small, are mapped to
Rough solutions of the Einstein constraint equations on compact manifolds
We construct low regularity solutions of the vacuum Einstein constraint equations on compact manifolds. On 3-manifolds we obtain solutions with metrics in Hs where s > 3/2. The constant mean

In this short note, we give a construction of solutions to th e Einstein con- straint equations using the well known conformal method. Our method gives a result sim- ilar to the one in (14, 15, 21),
Non-CMC solutions of the Einstein constraint equations on asymptotically Euclidean manifolds
In this note we prove two existence theorems for the Einstein constraint equations on asymptotically Euclidean manifolds. The first is for arbitrary mean curvature functions with restrictions on the
