Proof of a Null Penrose Conjecture using a new Quasi-local Mass

Wednesday, November 30, 2016 -
3:00pm to 4:00pm
We define an explicit quasi-local mass functional which is nondecreasing along all null foliations (satisfying a convexity assumption) of null cones. We use this new functional to prove the Null Penrose Conjecture under fairly generic conditions.
