Uniqueness and non-uniqueness results for spacetime extensions

  title={Uniqueness and non-uniqueness results for spacetime extensions},
  author={Jan Sbierski},
Given a function f : A → R n of a certain regularity defined on some open subset A ⊆ R m , it is a classical problem of analysis to investigate whether the function can be extended to all of R m in a certain regularity class. If an extension exists and is continuous, then certainly it is uniquely determined on the closure of A . A similar problem arises in general relativity for Lorentzian manifolds instead of functions on R m . It is well-known, however, that even if the extension of a… 



Conformal boundary extensions of Lorentzian manifolds

We study the question of local and global uniqueness of completions, based on null geodesics, of Lorentzian manifolds. We show local uniqueness of such boundary extensions. We give a necessary and

On holonomy singularities in general relativity and the $C^{0,1}_{\mathrm{loc}}$-inextendibility of spacetimes

This paper investigates the structure of gravitational singularities at the level of the connection. We show in particular that for FLRW spacetimes with particle horizons a local holonomy, which is

The interior of dynamical vacuum black holes I: The $C^0$-stability of the Kerr Cauchy horizon

We initiate a series of works where we study the interior of dynamical rotating vacuum black holes without symmetry. In the present paper, we take up the problem starting from appropriate Cauchy data

A new definition of singular points in general relativity

To any space time a boundary is attached on which incomplete geodesics terminate as well as inextensible timelike curves of finite length and bounded acceleration. The construction is free ofad hoc

On the proof of the C0-inextendibility of the Schwarzschild spacetime

This article presents a streamlined version of the author’s original proof of the C0-inextendibility of the maximal analytic Schwarzschild spacetime. Firstly, we deviate from the original proof by

Globally hyperbolic spacetimes can be defined as ‘causal’ instead of ‘strongly causal’

The classical definition of global hyperbolicity for a spacetime (M, g) comprises two conditions: (A) compactness of the diamonds J+(p)∩J−(q), and (B) strong causality. Here we show that condition

On geodesics in low regularity

We consider geodesics in both Riemannian and Lorentzian manifolds with metrics of low regularity. We discuss existence of extremal curves for continuous metrics and present several old and new

On Lorentzian causality with continuous metrics

We present a systematic study of causality theory on Lorentzian manifolds with continuous metrics. Examples are given which show that some standard facts in smooth Lorentzian geometry, such as

Some regularity results for Lorentz–Finsler spaces

We prove that for continuous Lorentz–Finsler spaces timelike completeness implies inextendibility. Furthermore, we prove that under suitable locally Lipschitz conditions on the Finsler fundamental

On maximal globally hyperbolic vacuum space-times

We prove existence and uniqueness of maximal global hyperbolic developments of vacuum general relativistic initial data sets with initial data (g, K) in Sobolev spaces $${H^{s} \bigoplus H^{s - 1},
