Abstract NoteThis thesis presents the state of the art in the study of Bondi-Metzner-Sachs (BMS) symmetry and its applications in the simplified setting of three dimensions. It focuses on presenting all the background material in a pedagogical and self-contained manner to enable readers to fully appreciate the original results that have been obtained while learning a number of fundamental concepts in the field along the way. This makes it a highly rewarding read and a perfect starting point for anybody with a serious interest in the four-dimensional problem
