Blowup rate control for solution of Jang's equation and its application on Penrose inequality

Yu, Wenhua

We prove that the blowup term of a blowup solution of Jang's equation on an initial data set (M,g,k) near an arbitrary strictly stable MOTS Σ is exactly −1/√λlog τ, where τ is the distance from Σ and λ is the principal eigenvalue of the MOTS stability operator of Σ. We also prove that the gradient of the solution is of order τ^(-1). Moreover, we apply these results to get a Penrose-like inequality under additional assumptions.
