We study the behavior near the singularity t=0 of Gowdy metrics.
We prove existence of an open dense set $\hat \Omega$ of boundary
points near which the solution is smoothly ``asymptotically
velocity term dominated" (AVTD). We show that the set of AVTD
solutions satisfying a uniformity condition is open in the set of
all solutions. We analyse in detail the asymptotic behavior of
``power law" solutions at the (hitherto unchartered) points at
which the asymptotic velocity equals zero or one. Several other
related results are established.

## Cauchy horizons in Gowdy space times

**Author:** Piotr T. Chrusciel, Kayll Lake

**Comments:** gr-qc/0307088, 24 pages

We analyse
exhaustively the structure of non-degenerate Cauchy horizons in
Gowdy space-times, and we establish existence of a large class of
non-polarized Gowdy space-times with such horizons.
