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
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
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
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
Time-asymmetric initial data for black holes and black-hole collisions
As a first step in constructing initial data for dynamic black holes and general black-hole collisions, we study nonsingular vacuum Cauchy hypersurfaces with two isometric asymptotically flat ends
Generalized Bowen-York Initial Data
A class of vacuum initial-data sets is described which are based on certain expressions for the extrinsic curvature first studied and employed by Bowen and York. These expressions play a role for the

In the analysis of General Relativity as a Hamiltonian system [1] one chooses a time function and considers the foliation of the spacetime by the slices of constant time. Two natural geometrical
