Regularity at space-like and null infinity

Abstract:

We extend Penrose's peeling model for the asymptotic behaviour of solutions to the scalar wave equation at null infinity on asymptotically flat backgrounds, which is well understood for flat space-time, to Schwarzschild and the asymptotically simple space-times of Corvino-Schoen/Chrusciel-Delay. We combine conformal techniques and vector field methods: a naive adaptation of the Morawetz vector field'' to a conformal rescaling of the Schwarzschild metric yields a complete scattering theory o...
