Abstract: We prove a positive mass theorem for spaces which asymptotically approach
a flat Euclidean space times a Calabi-Yau manifold (or any special honolomy manifold
except the quaternionic Kšahler). This is motivated by the very recent work of Hertog-
Horowitz-Maeda [HHM].
In general relativity, isolated gravitational systems are modelled by asymptotically flat
spacetimes. The spatial slices of such spacetime are then asymptotically flat Riemannian
manifolds. That is, Riemannian manifolds (Mn, g) such that M = M0 M with M0
compact and M Rn
- BR(0) for some R > 0 so that in the induced Euclidean
