4 Newtonian theory and special relativity

  To put the global results discussed in this article into context it is helpful to compare with Newtonian theory and special relativity. Some of the theorems which have been proved in those contexts and which can offer insight into questions in general relativity will now be reviewed. It should be noted that even in these simpler contexts open questions abound.
