INdAM (Istituto Nazionale di Alta Matematica), MSRI (Mathematical Science Research Institute), SMI (Scuola Matematica Interuniversitaria), in cooperation with the CMI (Clay Mathematics Institute), organize a a summer graduate workshop on Mathematical General Relativity in Cortona during the summer of 2013; the school will reprise the very successful school of Mathematical General Relativity held at MSRI in 2012.
Mathematical general relativity is the study of mathematical problems related to Einstein's theory of gravitation. There are interesting connections between the physical theory and problems in differential geometry and partial differential equations.
The purpose of the summer school is to introduce graduate students to some fundamental aspects of mathematical general relativity, with particular emphasis on the geometry of the Einstein constraint equations and the Positive Mass Theorem. These topics will comprise a component of the upcoming semester program at MSRI in Fall 2013.
