Constant Curvature Spacelike Hypersurfaces in the Lorentz–Minkowski Space

Luis J. Alias and Jose A. Pastor

Abstract

In this paper we will report on some of our recent results about compact spacelike hypersurfaces with spherical boundary in the Lorentz–Minkowski space $\mathbb{L}^{n+1}$. In particular we will prove that the only compact spacelike hypersurfaces in $\mathbb{L}^{n+1}$ with constant mean curvature and spherical boundary are the hyperplanar balls and the hyperbolic caps. As for the case of the scalar curvature, we will prove that the only compact spacelike hypersurfaces in $\mathbb{L}^{n+1}$ with nonzero constant scalar curvature and spherical boundary are the hyperbolic caps. Our approach is based on the use of several integral formulas, among them there are a volume formula and a flux formula.
