Location:  MSRI, Berkeley, CA, USA

This workshop discusses recent developments both in the study of the properties of initial data for Einstein’s equations, and in the study of solutions of the Einstein evolution problem. Cosmic censorship, the formation and stability of black holes, the role of mass and quasi-local mass, and the construction of solutions of the Einstein constraint equations are focus problems for the workshop. We highlight recent developments, and examine major areas in which future progress is likely.
