Abstract

A local version of the topological censorship theorem of Friedman, Schleich and Witt is obtained. The assumption of asymptotic flatness, in the sense of admitting a suitably well behaved null infinity, is replaced by a much milder approximate asymptotic flatness condition along the lines of Ellis' notion of finite infinity.
