Zoe Wyatt (King’s College) – Global stability of Kaluza-Klein spacetimes
April 12, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Title: Global stability of Kaluza-Klein spacetimes
Abstract: 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 a result, 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.
