We show how to parameterise solutions of the general relativistic vector constraint equation on Einstein manifolds by unconstrained potentials. We provide a similar construction for the trace-free part of tensors satisfying the linearised scalar constraint. Previous work of ours has provided similar different constructions for solutions of the linearized constraints in the case where the cosmological constant Λ is zero. We use our new potentials to show that one can shield linearised… 

Complexes from complexes

A systematic procedure is presented which, starting from well-understood differential complexes such as the de Rham complex, derives new complexes and deduces the properties of the new complexes from the old, and shows that the new complex has closed ranges and satisfies a Hodge decomposition, Poincare type inequalities, well-posed Hodge-Laplacian boundary value problems, regular decomposition and compactness properties on general Lipschitz domains.

BGG sequences with weak regularity and applications

We investigate some Bernstein-Gelfand-Gelfand (BGG) complexes on bounded Lipschitz domains in Rn consisting of Sobolev spaces. In particular, we compute the cohomology of the conformal deformation

Oberwolfach report : Discretization of Hilbert complexes

The aim is to provide an overview of some aspects of discretization of Hilbert complexes with an emphasis on confirming elements.

The general relativistic constraint equations

We present the state-of-the-art concerning the relativistic constraints, which describe the geometry of hypersurfaces in a spacetime subject to the Einstein field equations. We review a variety of



TT-tensors and conformally flat structures on 3-manifolds

We study transverse-tracefree (TT)-tensors on conformally flat 3-manifolds $(M,g)$. The Cotton-York tensor linearized at $g$ maps every symmetric tracefree tensor into one which is TT. The question

Shielding linearized gravity

We present an elementary argument that one can shield linearised gravitational fields using linearised gravitational fields. This is done by using third-order potentials for the metric, which avoids

Gluing for the constraints for higher spin fields

This note is a follow-up on the paper by Beig and Chruściel regarding the use of potentials to perform gluing and shielding of initial data for Maxwell fields and linearised gravity. Based on a work

The divDiv-complex and applications to biharmonic equations

ABSTRACT It is shown that the first biharmonic boundary value problem on a topologically trivial domain in 3D is equivalent to three (consecutively to solve) second-order problems. This decomposition

The global extension of local symmetries in general relativity

A theorem is given which states that, under certain conditions, local symmetries (isometries, homotheties, affine collineations and conformal motions) can all be extended to global symmetries on

A complex from linear elasticity

Introduction: This article will present just one example of a general construction known as the Bernstein-Gelfand-Gelfand (BGG) resolution. It was the motivating example from two lectures on the BGG

Differential complexes and numerical stability

A new geometric viewpoint has pointed the way to stable discretizations of problems for which none were previously known, and it appears likely to play an important role in attacking some currently intractable problems in numerical PDE.
