Willie Wong 2011-06-16T15:52:25Z 2011-06-16T16:00:43Z <p>Maybe Markus Khuri's <a href="http://www.math.sunysb.edu/~blaine/RTGsources/Khuri-PMT.pdf" rel="nofollow">RTG notes</a> would help? </p> <p>There's also a set of lecture notes by Rick Schoen for his 2009 course in Stanford on General Relativity, which has a nice discussion of the fundamental ideas involved in the proof of the PMT. I don't know if it is publich available on the internet though...</p> http://mathoverflow.net/questions/67956/a-survey-on-positive-mass-theorem/68005#68005 Answer by Peter Smillie for A survey on positive mass theorem? Peter Smillie 2011-06-16T21:20:22Z 2011-06-16T21:20:22Z <p>H. Bray's articles "Black Holes, Geometric Flows, and the Penrose Inequality in General Relativity" (Notices AMS, 2002) contains a very short, but elegant, survey of the positive mass theorem. He also has a <a href="http://arxiv.org/pdf/1101.2230" rel="nofollow">longer survey</a> that goes into several simpler cases.</p>
