Future stability of the FLRW fluid solutions in the presence of a positive cosmological constant. (English) Zbl 1346.83023

Summary: We introduce a new method for establishing the future non-linear stability of perturbations of FLRW solutions to the Einstein-Euler equations with a positive cosmological constant and a linear equation of state of the form \(p=K\rho\). The method is based on a conformal transformation of the Einstein-Euler equations that compactifies the time domain and can handle the equation of state parameter values \(0<K\leq 1/3\) in a uniform manner. It also determines the asymptotic behavior of the perturbed solutions in the far future.
