Given an initial data set for the vacuum Einstein equations which is suitably close to that of Minkowski space, the monumental work of Christodoulou—Klainerman guarantees the corresponding solution exists globally and asymptotically approaches the Minkowski solution. The aim of the talk is to put this theorem in context, emphasising the role played by the null condition, before briefly discussing what happens in the presence of matter. The talk is aimed to be accessible to first year graduate students in analysis and will serve as an introduction to the mathematics of general relativity.
