  • Contains classical results on stability of great beauty
  • Presents the objects needed to prove the theorems and the Cauchy problem for Einstein's equation in a self-contained way
  • Provides introductory chapters on pseudo-Riemannian manifolds and relativity (both special and general) addressed to readers having no background in these topics and a new definition of stability of Einstein's equation adapted to the case of matter and gives results concerning stability in Robertson-Walker models
