A moderator removed this off-topic discussion from another thread. Does anyone on the Physics Forums have expertise on the existence of global solutions of general relativity?

As you see, people have worked very hard for 104 years to prove existence theorems. As far as I know, they are all limited to small perturbations of highly symmetric solutions.

Can anyone point to research that might have progressed closer to realistic physical configurations?

Part of the problem (the main problem) was your personal and overly restrictive view of what constituted a realistic physical configuration. For example, you objected to the FLRW solution as being unrealistic whereas most scientists and particularly cosmologists consider it realistic.

That is not true. Global existence (as in the maximal hyperbolic Cauchy development) is a result from 1969 (Choquet-Bruhat, Geroch). What is limited is the understanding of those solutions.

What do you mean by realistic physical configuration?

Which is completely irrelevant to this thread. Please do not carry over whatever issue you might have with the moderators in a previous thread to new threads.
