We are entering an era where the numerical construction of generic spacetimes is becoming a reality. The use of computer simulations, in principle, allows us to solve Einstein equations in their full generality and unravel important messages so far hidden in the theory. Despite the problems still found in present applications, significant progress is being achieved in a number of areas where simulations are on the verge of providing useful physical information. This article reviews recent…

Asymptotics and singularities in cosmological models with positive cosmological constant
This thesis is concerned with global properties of those cosmological solutions of Einstein's field equations which obey accelerated expansion into the future driven by a non-vanishing cosmological
On 'many-black-hole' vacuum spacetimes
We analyse the horizon structure of families of spacetimes obtained by evolving initial data sets containing apparent horizons with several connected components. We show that under certain smallness
Group analysis of equations arising in embedding theory.
Embedding theories are concerned with the embedding of a lower dimensional manifold (dim = n, say) into a higher dimensional one (usually dim = n+1, but not necessarily so). We are concerned with the

Gravitational Radiation
IN recent years there has been a good deal of controversy about gravitational radiation. Historically, the position is as follows. It was shown quite soon after the publication of the general theory
