We show that in the conformally flat case the Penrose inequality is satisfied for the Schwarzschild initial data with a small addition of the axially symmetric traceless exterior curvature. In this class the inequality is saturated only for data related to special sections of the Schwarzschild spacetime. 

The Penrose inequality for nonmaximal perturbations of the Schwarzschild initial data

We show that the Penrose inequality is satisfied for generic (in some sense) conformally flat axially symmetric nonmaximal perturbations of the Schwarzschild data. A role of horizon is played by a

Asymptotically Hyperbolic Einstein Constraint Equations with Apparent Horizon Boundary and the Penrose Inequality for Perturbations of Schwarzschild-AdS

. We prove the existence of asymptotically hyperbolic solutions to the vacuum Einstein constraint equations with a marginally outer trapped boundary of positive mean curvature, using the constant

Recent Developments in the Penrose Conjecture

We survey recent developments towards a proof of the Penrose conjecture and results on Penrose-type and other geometric inequalities for quasi-local masses in general relativity.



On the Penrose inequality for general horizons.

For asymptotically flat initial data of Einstein's equations satisfying an energy condition, we show that the Penrose inequality holds between the Arnowitt-Deser-Misner mass and the area of an

Penrose inequality and apparent horizons

A spherically symmetric spacetime is presented with an initial data set that is asymptotically flat, satisfies the dominant energy condition, and such that on this initial data

Solutions of the Einstein Constraint Equations with Apparent Horizon Boundaries

We construct asymptotically Euclidean solutions of the vacuum Einstein constraint equations with an apparent horizon boundary condition. Specifically, we give sufficient conditions for the constant

The inverse mean curvature flow and the Riemannian Penrose Inequality

Let M be an asymptotically flat 3-manifold of nonnegative scalar curvature. The Riemannian Penrose Inequality states that the area of an outermost minimal surface N in M is bounded by the ADM mass m

New solutions of initial conditions in general relativity

We find new classes of exact solutions of the initial momentum constraint for vacuum Einstein’s equations. Considered data are either invariant under a continuous symmetry or they are assumed to have

All transverse and TT tensors in flat spaces of any dimension

We present general formulas for transverse and transverse-traceless (TT) symmetric tensors in flat spaces. TT tensors in conformally flat spaces can be obtained by means of a conformal transformation.

Present status of the Penrose inequality

The Penrose inequality gives a lower bound for the total mass of a spacetime in terms of the area of suitable surfaces that represent black holes. Its validity is supported by the cosmic censorship

CORRIGENDUM: Trapped surfaces as boundaries for the constraint equations

Trapped surfaces are studied as inner boundary for the Einstein vacuum constraint equations. The trapped surface condition can be written as a nonlinear boundary condition for these equations. Under

The general Penrose inequality: lessons from numerical evidence

Formulation of the Penrose inequality becomes ambiguous when the past and future apparent horizons do cross. We test numerically several natural possibilities of stating the inequality in punctured

Numerical Bifurcation Analysis of the Conformal Method

The conformal formulation of the Einstein constraint equations has been studied intensively since the modern version of the conformal method was first pub- lished in the early 1970s. Proofs of
