This chapter presents the main theorem, its main conclusions, as well as a full strategy of its proof, divided in nine supporting intermediate results, Theorems M0–M8. The chapter specifies the closeness to Schwarzschild of the initial data in the context of the Characteristic Cauchy problem. The conclusions of the main theorem can be immediately extended to the case where the data are specified to be close to Schwarzschild on a spacelike hypersurface Σ. The chapter then outlines the main bootstrap assumptions. It also provides a short description of the results concerning the General Covariant Modulation procedure, which is at the heart of the proof.
