From the reviews:"The authors of the book under review have contributed to this subject over the last ten years by studying the linearization stability for Einstein's equations with source terms and in cosmological solutions. Here they present the results in a systematic fashion accessible to a reader with some background in differential geometry and partial differential equations."
