Wave equations on silent big bang backgrounds

  title={Wave equations on silent big bang backgrounds},
  author={Hans Ringstrom},
This article is the first of two in which we develop a geometric framework for analysing silent and anisotropic big bang singularities. The results of the present article concern the asymptotic behaviour of solutions to linear systems of wave equations on the corresponding backgrounds. The main features are the following: The assumptions do not involve any symmetry requirements and are weak enough to be consistent with most big bang singularities for which the asymptotic geometry is understood…

Stability of AVTD Behavior within the Polarized $T^2$-symmetric vacuum spacetimes
Abstract. We prove stability of the family of Kasner solutions within the class of polarized T-symmetric solutions of the vacuum Einstein equations in the contracting time direction with respect to
