Exploring the Conformal Constraint Equations

The Conformal Structure of Spacetime
2003

Abstract

The extended constraint equations arise as a special case of the conformal constraint equations that are satisfied by an initial data hypersurface Z in an asymptotically simple space-time satisfying the vacuum conformal Einstein equations developed by H. Friedrich. The extended constraint equations consist of a quasi-linear system of partial differential equations for the induced metric, the second fundamental form and two other tensorial quantities defined on Z, and are equivalent to the usual constraint equations that Z satisfies as a space-like hypersurface in a space-time satisfying Einstein’s vacuum equation. This article explores a perturbative solution strategy for these equations.
