Extensions of the stability theorem of the Minkowski space in general relativity.9780821848234 Extensions of the stability theorem of the Minkowski space in general relativity. Zipser, Nina. American Mathematical Society 2009 491 pages $119.00 Hardcover QA689 This volume contains two independent works, each presenting different extensions of D. Christoulou and S. Klainerman's stability theorem of the Minkowski space in General Relativity, representing the work of the authors' doctoral theses. The first work solves the Cauchy problem for the Einstein vacuum equations with more general, asymptotically flat initial data and then describes the asymptotic behavior. The second proves the existence of smooth, global solutions to the EinsteinMaxwell equations. ([c]2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR)
