On the uniqueness of the foliation of spheres of constant mean curvature in asymptotically flat 3-manifolds
Seminar Room 2, Newton Institute Gatehouse
We study constant mean curvature surfaces in asymptotically flat 3-manifolds. We prove that, outside a given compact subset in an asymptotically flat 3-manifold with positive mass, stable spheres of given constant mean curvature are unique. Therefore we are able to conclude that there is a unique foliation of stable spheres of constant mean curvature in an asymptotically flat 3-manifold with positive mass.
