Trapped submanifolds in Lorentzian geometry


In Lorentzian geometry, the concept of trapped submanifold is introduced by means of the mean curvature vector properties. Trapped submanifolds are generalizations of the standard maximal hypersurfaces and minimal surfaces, of geodesics, and also of the trapped surfaces introduced by Penrose. Selected applications to gravitational theories are mentioned.
