The properties of Asymptotically flat space-times are considered with emphasis on Peeling. Penrose's method of conformal mapping is used to define Asymptotes, Asymptotic Simplicity and Asymptotically flat space-times. The boundary manifold is examined by the behavior of its geometrical properties and by group theoretic means. The behavior of massless fields on flat and curved space-times is considered with the final results being the Peeling theorems. The Peeling theorems are used to examine the asymptotic behavior of physical quantities associated with massless fields. Asymptotically flat space-times which do not peel are also briefly considered.Dept. of Physics.
