On the Cosmic No-Hair Conjecture in $\mathbb{T}^2$-symmetric non-linear scalar field spacetimes

At late times, cosmological spacetimes solving Einstein's field equations, at least when assuming a positive cosmological constant, are conjectured to isotropise and appear like the de Sitter spacetime to late time observers. This is the statement of the Cosmic No-Hair conjecture. In this talk, I consider Einstein's non-linear scalar field equations and spacetimes with $\mathbb{T}^2$-symmetry. I present results on future global existence of such solutions and discuss the conjecture in the setting of a constant potential.

This talk is based on arXiv:1712.01801.
