Einstein’s theory of General Relativity is a well-posed theory of gravity from which one should be able to extract predictions for the evolution of any suitable initial configuration. Extracting concrete predictions can be extremely challenging in practice, mainly due to the nonlinear character of the Einstein equations.

This workshop aims to bring together a diverse group of researchers from astrophysics, physics and mathematics backgrounds to share ideas and explore multi-disciplinary strategies for tackling the nonlinear aspects of General Relativity. These issues range from black hole mergers/ringdown, and gravitational self-force to cosmic censorship and the stability of black holes.
