Non-smooth differential geometry of pseudo-Riemannian manifolds: Boundary and geodesic structure of gravitational wave space-times in mathematical relativity

Fama, Christopher J


This thesis is largely concerned with the changing representations of 'boundary' or 'ideal' points of a pseudo-Riemannian manifold -- and our primary interest is in the space-times of general relativity. In particular, we are interested in the following question: What assumptions about the 'nature' of 'portions' of a certain 'ideal boundary' construction (essentially the 'abstract boundary' of Scott and Szekeres (1994)) allow us to define precisely the topological type of these 'portions',...[Show more]
