SummaryThe stability of solutions to Einstein’s equations is essential for the physical interpretation. However, its investigations are mathematically challenging. The Anti-de Sitter space (AdS) is a frequently used solution in theoretical physics, even though only recently insights about its stability were achieved. This article reviews the current state of research concerning that question, in particular the coexistence of stable and instable regimes.
