GTAW01 - General Relativity: from Geometry to Amplitudes

We will discuss instability and non-compactness results for the conformal constraint equations in dimensions larger than six. These equations are obtained from the classical constraint equations of the evolution problem in General Relativity after a conformal change of variables. The system obtained in this way is a nonlinear critical system of elliptic PDEs.
We will show that in high dimensions blowing-up solutions of this system of equations naturally appear. The method is constructive, and the construction involves topological and blow-up techniques and relies on the  a priori analysis of defects of compactness for critical elliptic PDEs. A reformulation in terms of the initial-value problem will be given.
