A fundamental problem in the context of Einstein’s equations of general relativity is to understand the dynamical evolution of small initial data perturbations of known Einstein spacetimes. In this talk I will discuss the stability under the vacuum Einstein equations of the Cartesian product of high-dimensional Minkowski space with a compact, Ricci-flat Riemannian manifold admitting nonzero parallel spinors. Such a product includes special holonomy compactifications, which play a central role in string theory and supergravity.
