This year the fifth Galileo-Xu Quangqi meeting will be held jointly with the annual meeting of the Division of Gravitation and Relativistic Astrophysics of the Chinese Physical Society, in the School of Physical Science and Technology, Southwest Jiaotong University, at Chengdu – China on June 25 -30.
The meeting is particularly dedicated to recall the roots of the modern scientific research in the East and the West and review the recent progress in one of the most advanced fields of scientific research: the one of relativistic astrophysics. We will review current progress in Relativistic Astrophysics made possible by astronomical observations of the Sun, of the Stars and of the Universe, and the current developments of theoretical studies of gravitation and cosmology as well as other fundamental physics.
These results have been achieved thanks to the theories of Albert Einstein and to the unprecedented numbers of observational techniques: in X-ray, Gamma-ray, optical wave-lengths from space based observatories, in radio telescopes wavelengths from telescopes on the ground as well as in particle physics from underground observatories.
