All local gauge invariants for black hole perturbation theory

General Relativity, Geometry and Analysis: beyond the first 100 years after Einstein

10 October 10:00 - 11:00

Steffen Aksteiner - Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute)

Gauge invariant quantities play a fundamental role in the analysis of the linearized Einstein equations. After reviewing some classical results in black hole perturbation theory, we present a complete set of local gauge invariants for the Kerr geometry. The proof of completeness is based on the construction of a compatibility complex for the Killing operator. This is joint work with Lars Andersson, Thomas Bäckdahl, Igor Khavkine and Bernard Whiting.
