Title: On the stability of black holes


Are black holes stable? This fascinating question has attracted a lot of attention in the physics community from the 60’s on. Over the last 10 years, it has also generated an intense activity in mathematical relativity. I will present the main stability conjecture, the history of the problem as well as some of the main challenges. I will also discuss a work in progress with Sergiu Klainerman concerning a particular case of this conjecture.
