Stability of spacetimes with supersymmetric compactifications

April 15, 2020 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Speaker: Lars Andersson (Max-Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics)

Title: Stability of spacetimes with supersymmetric compactifications

Abstract: Spacetimes with compact directions, which have special holonomy such as Calabi-Yau spaces, play an important role in supergravity and string theory. In this talk I will discuss the global, non-linear stability for the vacuum Einstein equations on a spacetime which is a cartesian product of a high dimensional Minkowski space with a compact Ricci flat internal space with special holonomy. I will start by giving a brief overview of related stability problems which have received a lot of attention recently, including the black hole stability problem. This is based on joint work with Pieter Blue, Zoe Wyatt, and Shing-Tung Yau.
