Hyperbolic & Dispersive PDE Seminar

Global stability of Kaluza-Klein spacetimes

Zoe Wyatt (King's College London)

Location:  Hill 705
Date & time: Thursday, 04 May 2023 at 3:30PM - 4:30PM

Spacetimes formed from the cartesian product of Minkowski space and a flat torus play an important role as toy models for theories of supergravity and string theory. In this talk I will discuss an upcoming work, joint with Huneau and Stingo, showing the nonlinear stability of such a Kaluza-Klein spacetime. I will also explain how our result is connected to some earlier work of Witten.
