The Strauss Conjecture on Black Holes

The Strauss conjecture for the Minkowski spacetime in three dimensions states that the semilinear equation wave \((u) = u^p\) has a global solution for compactly supported and sufficiently small data if \(p> 1+\sqrt 2\). We prove a similar result in the context of Schwarzschild and Kerr with small angular momentum black holes. This is joint work with H. Lindblad, J. Metcalfe, C. Sogge, and C. Wang.
