Parameterizing Initial Data in General Relativity -- CANCELLED (WILL BE RESCHEDULED)

James Dilts


Initial data in general relativity must satisfy certain underdetermined differential equations called the constraint equations. A natural problem is to find a parameterization of all possible initial data. A standard method for this is called the conformal method. In this talk, we'll discuss the successes and failures of this method, and future directions for research.
