Our recent joint work with Andrzej Rostworowski on nonlinear evolution of a weakly perturbed anti-de Sitter (AdS) space indicates that AdS is unstable under arbitrarily small perturbations. We conjectured that this instability is due to the resonant mode mixing which transfers energy from low to high frequencies until eventually an apparent horizon forms. In my talk I will present numerical, analytical and heuristic evidence supporting this conjecture.
