In this paper we pose and prove a spacetime version of Gromov’s dihedral rigidity theorem ([17],[24],[25]) for cubes when the dimension is 3 by studying the level sets of spacetime harmonic functions ([40],[7],[21]), extending the work of [9]. As a corollary, we also obtain an alternative proof of dihedral rigidity for prisms in hyperbolic space ([26]). We then discuss the relation between polyhedra and the spacetime positive mass theorem. This generalises the work of [32] and [25]. Finally, we… 

On a spacetime positive mass theorem with corners

In this paper we consider the positive mass theorem for general initial data sets satisfying the dominant energy condition which are singular across a piecewise smooth surface. We find jump

Rigid comparison geometry for Riemannian bands and open incomplete manifolds

The dihedral rigidity conjecture for n-prisms

We prove the following comparison theorem for metrics with nonnegative scalar curvature, also known as the dihedral rigidity conjecture by Gromov: for n ≤ 7, if an n -dimensional prism has

The study of comparison theorems in geometry has a rich history. In this paper, we establish a comparison theorem for polyhedra in 3-manifolds with nonnegative scalar curvature, answering

Dihedral Rigidity of Parabolic Polyhedrons in Hyperbolic Spaces

In this note, we establish the dihedral rigidity phenomenon for a collection of parabolic polyhedrons enclosed by horospheres in hyperbolic manifolds, extending Gromov's comparison theory to metrics

Spacetime Harmonic Functions and Applications to Mass

In the pioneering work of Stern [73], level sets of harmonic functions have been shown to be an effective tool in the study of scalar curvature in dimension 3. Generalizations of this idea, utilizing

Interpreting Mass via Riemannian Polyhedra

We give an account of some recent development that connects the concept of mass in general relativity to the geometry of large Riemannian polyhedra, in the setting of both asymptotically flat and

Dirac and Plateau billiards in domains with corners

Groping our way toward a theory of singular spaces with positive scalar curvatures we look at the Dirac operator and a generalized Plateau problem in Riemannian manifolds with corners. Using these,

Inspired by a formula of Stern that relates scalar curvature to harmonic functions, we evaluate the mass of an asymptotically flat 3-manifold along faces and edges of a large coordinate cube. In

Scalar curvature, mean curvature and harmonic maps to the circle

We study harmonic maps from a 3-manifold with boundary to $$\mathbb {S}^1$$ S 1 and prove a special case of Gromov dihedral rigidity of three-dimensional cubes whose dihedral angles are $$\pi / 2$$ π
