Global uniqueness theorems for linear and nonlinear waves

Non-existence of time-periodic vacuum spacetimes

We prove that smooth asymptotically flat solutions to the Einstein vacuum equations which are assumed to be periodic in time, are in fact stationary in a neighborhood of infinity. Our result applies

Scattering from infinity for semilinear wave equations satisfying the null condition or the weak null condition

We show global existence backwards from scattering data at infinity for semilinear wave equations satisfying the null condition or the weak null condition. Semilinear terms satisfying the weak null

A VECTOR FIELD METHOD FOR NON-TRAPPING, RADIATING SPACETIMES

We study the global decay properties of solutions to the linear wave equation in 1+3 dimensions on time-dependent, weakly asymptotically flat spacetimes. Assuming non-trapping of null geodesics and a

A Vector Field Method for Non-Trapping, Radiating Spacetimes

We study the global decay properties of solutions to the linear wave equation in 1+3 dimensions on time-dependent, weakly asymptotically flat spacetimes. Assuming non-trapping of null geodesics and a

Carleman estimates with sharp weights and boundary observability for wave operators with critically singular potentials

We establish a new family of Carleman inequalities for wave operators on cylindrical spacetime domains containing a potential that is critically singular, diverging as an inverse square on all the

A scattering theory for the wave equation on kerr black hole exteriors

We develop a definitive physical-space scattering theory for the scalar wave equation on Kerr exterior backgrounds in the general subextremal case |a|<M. In particular, we prove results corresponding

Stationarity of asymptotically flat non-radiating electrovacuum spacetimes

It is proven that a solution to the Einstein-Maxwell equations whose gravitational and electromagnetic radiation fields vanish at infinity is in fact stationary in a neighbourhood of spatial

A uniqueness theorem for 3D semilinear wave equations satisfying the null condition

. In this paper, we prove a uniqueness theorem for a system of semilinear wave equations satisfying the null condition in R 1+3 . Suppose that two global solutions with C ∞ c initial data have equal

On Schwarzschild causality in higher dimensions

We show that the causal properties of asymptotically flat spacetimes depend on their dimensionality: while the time-like future of any point in the past conformal infinity I− contains the whole of

Uniqueness Results for Ill-Posed Characteristic Problems in Curved Space-Times

We prove two uniqueness theorems concerning linear wave equations; the first theorem is in Minkowski space-times, while the second is in the domain of outer communication of a Kerr black hole. Both

Hawking’s Local Rigidity Theorem Without Analyticity

We prove the existence of a Hawking Killing vector-field in a full neighborhood of a local, regular, bifurcate, non-expanding horizon embedded in a smooth vacuum Einstein manifold. The result extends

Radiation Fields on Schwarzschild Spacetime

In this paper we define the radiation field for the wave equation on the Schwarzschild black hole spacetime. In this context it has two components: the rescaled restriction of the time derivative of

On asymptotically flat solutions of Einstein's equations periodic in time: II. Spacetimes with scalar-field sources

We extend the work in our earlier paper (Bičák J et al 2010 Class. Quantum Grav. 27 055007) to show that time-periodic, asymptotically flat solutions of the Einstein equations analytic at , whose

On the local extension of Killing vector-fields in Ricci flat manifolds

We revisit the extension problem for Killing vector-fields in smooth Ricci flat manifolds, and its relevance to the black hole rigidity problem. We prove both a stronger version of the main local

Quasi-spherical light cones of the Kerr geometry

Quasi-spherical light cones are lightlike hypersurfaces of the Kerr geometry that are asymptotic to Minkowski light cones at infinity. We derive the equations of these surfaces and examine their
