Title: Finite codimension solvability of quasilinear wave equations

Abstract: I will describe a general framework, applicable on de Sitter and Kerr-de Sitter spacetimes, which allows one to solve quasilinear wave equations globally for restricted initial data even if the linearized operator has exponentially growing modes. As an application, I will revisit the nonlinear stability of de Sitter space in the context of general relativity. This is work in progress with András Vasy.
