Introduction In the last 20 years, the Ricci flow system for a Riemannian metric introduced in =-=[1]-=- ∂tg = −2Rc(g) has been used with great success for the construction of canonical metrics on Riemannian manifolds of low dimension.

The general definition can be found in =-=[25]-=- where it is also shown that the ADM mass is invariantly defined and independent of the asymptotic coordinate system. We prove that the flow (3.1) preserves the class of asymptotically flat manifolds ... |

For the complete case we show [15, §3] that the proof of Shi =-=[17]-=- can be modified to the situation at hand. This yields the following general existence theorem: Theorem 4.1.
