Introductory Workshop: Mathematical General Relativity
Month: September 2013
Date: September 9--13
Name: Introductory Workshop: Mathematical General Relativity
Location: Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, Berkeley, California.
Mathematical relativity is a very widely ranging area of mathematical study, spanning differential geometry, elliptic and hyperbolic PDE, and dynamical systems. We introduce in this workshop some of the leading areas of current interest, with a special focus on those areas which are related to the geometry and physics of the initial data of general relativity, and those which primarily involve Riemannian geometry and elliptic PDE.
