Differential Geometry: "Proof of a Null Geometry Penrose Conjecture using a new Quasi-local Mass"

Dr. Henri Roesch, UC Irvine

We define an explicit quasi-local mass functional which is non decreasing along any doubly convex foliation of a null cone. We use this new functional to prove the Penrose Conjecture under fairly generic conditions.
