Mathematical General Relativity
Date: 29 July 2013
Location: Cortona, Italy
Event type: Research School
Organisers: Justin Corvino (Lafayette) and Pengzi Miao (Miami)
Mathematical general relativity is the study of mathematical problems related to Einstein’s theory of gravitation. There are interesting connections between the physical theory and problems in differential geometry and partial differential equations. The purpose of this MSRI Summer Graduate School, held in cooperation with INdAM (Istituto Nazionale di Alta Matematica), is to introduce students to some fundamental aspects of mathematical general relativity, with particular emphasis on the geometry of the Einstein constraint equations and the Positive Mass Theorem. The SGS will reprise the very successful school on Mathematical General Relativity held at MSRI in 2012.
