The Conformal Thin Sandwich Method in General Relativity

Slava Kungertsev
UCSD

Abstract:

Einstein's constraint equations govern the geometric properties of space-time in relation to matter and energy. Motivated by the preservation of the fulfillment of these constraints in a Hamiltonian formulation, the conformal thin sandwich method is a successful approach to determining the solution in a number of parameter classes.
