Summer School: Between Geometry and Relativity

The school is part of the special program “Geometry and Relativity” at the Erwin-Schroedinger-Institute (ESI) in Vienna. It is aimed at doctoral students and young researchers. Its goal is to present the latest developments in the field to younger colleagues and to researchers participating in the program and wishing to expand their research perspective. The school will also serve as a stepping stone for younger colleagues who wish to attend the conference.

We plan 6 lecture series for a total of 21 hours of lectures. In addition to the lectures there will be three two-hour problem sessions on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to accompany the lecture series of Corvino, Galloway, Ringstroem, and Schoen. A “reader” of lecture notes will be made available in due time.

A prerequisite is some grounding in differential geometry and general relativity.

Applications for participation can be submitted online. Applications received by April 15 will receive full consideration, with a first selection of participants by early May. Later applications might be considered depending upon the outcome of the first selection.
