A quasilocal charged Penrose inequality
CMSA GENERAL RELATIVITY SEMINAR
Po-Ning Chen - UC Riverside
In this talk, we will discuss a quasi-local Penrose inequality with charges for time-symmetric initial data of the Einstein-Maxwell equation. Namely, we derive a lower bound for Brown-York type quasi-local mass in terms of the horizon area and the electric charge. The inequality we obtained is sharp in the sense that equality holds for surfaces in the Reissner-Nordström manifold. This talk is based on joint work with Stephen McCormick.
