**Lecture III: Localizing solutions of the Einstein equations**

In general it is not possible to localize solutions of the Einstein equations since there are asymptotic conserved quantities such as the total mass which are nonzero for every nontrivial space-time. In this lecture we will describe recent work with A. Carlotto which achieves a localization in cones and leads to new constructions of non-interacting superpositions of solutions.
