If you have a question about this talk, please contact Jason Kwong. General relativity is a theory of gravity described by the celebrated Einstein equations, which relate the geometry and matter content of spacetime. The Minkowski spacetime, the spacetime of special relativity, is a special solution to these incredible equations. It depicts a vacuum spacetime with no curvature. A monumental result in mathematical phyiscs, discovered in 1993, is the proof that Minkowski spacetime is dynamically stable in the framework of the evolution problem in general relativity. I will describe the theorem and some of the fascinating ideas behind it.
