Caltech/UCLA/USC Joint Analysis Seminar
In-Person will be in 310 Linde Hall @ Caltech
In this talk, I will introduce a general method for understanding the late-time tail for solutions to wave equations on asymptotically flat spacetimes with odd spatial dimensions. A particular consequence of the method is a re-proof of Price's law-type results, which concern the sharp decay rate of the late-time tails on stationary spacetimes. Moreover, the method also applies to dynamical spacetimes. In this case, I will explain how the late-time tails are in general different(!) from the stationary case in the presence of dynamical and/or nonlinear perturbations of the problem. This is joint work with Jonathan Luk (Stanford).
