To touch the pulsing soul within it--
Yet with no art to reach Her heart,
Nor skill to teach me how to win it!

He succeeded to show that one can formulate the ”hyperboloidal initial value problem” for Einstein’s vacuum equations in which initial data are given on a hyperboloidal spacelike hypersurface H which intersects J (see Fig. 1).
Radiative spacetimes
The Christodoulou-Klainerman theorem involves a ”global smallness assumption” which requires appropriate (integral) norms of curvature tensor of initial data integrated over the initial Cauchy hypersurface to be small.

Ultimately the resolution of these issues will be settled by performing a sequence of evolutions beginning with more and more separated initial systems approaching the regime where different descriptions of the initial conﬁgurations (Post-Newtonian, quasistationary relativistic ansatz, etc) merge together.
