Abstract There are obstructions, such as the postive mass theorem, which require that general solutions of the Einstein equations must have nonvanishing asymptotic terms at infinity, and so cannot be localized. The extent to which they can be localized in light of these obstructions leads to constructions of interesting solutions with very special asymptotic behavior. We will describe such results and how they are obtained in this talk
