Title  Cauchy problem in general relativity 
Author(s)  Hans Ringstrom 
Publication  Zurich, European Mathematical Society, 2009. 
Description  xiii, 294p. 
Series  (Lectures in Mathematics and Physics) 
Abstract Note  This book first provides a definition of the concept of initial data and a proof of the correspondence between initial data and development. It turns out that some initial data allow nonisometric maximal developments, complicating the uniqueness issue. The second half of the book is concerned with this and related problems, such as strong cosmic censorship.
The book presents complete proofs of several classical results that play a central role in mathematical relativity but are not easily accessible to those without prior background in the subject. Prerequisites are a good knowledge of basic measure and integration theory as well as the fundamentals of Lorentz geometry. The necessary background from the theory of partial differential equations and Lorentz geometry is included.
