2022 NCTS Workshop on Mathematical General Relativity

August 8, 2022

Room 515+Online Meeting, Cosmology Building, NTU

Aim & Scope:

This is a one-day workshop focusing on mathematical general relativity.

Due to the equivalence principle and the lack of an absolute space, the understanding of this fundamental notion for gravitation has been subtle since Einstein's time. There was an intense period of study and the efforts culminated in the proof of the positive mass theorem by Schoen-Yau in 1980's (a different proof was given by Witten later).  The subject has since undergone rapid developments over the past decade. In particular, many new ideas and techniques from geometric analysis were applied and major progress has been achieved. Questions from this subject also stimulate the researches in differential geometry.

The Schoen--Yau “positive mass theorem” constituted an essential first step for defining “quasi-local” physical quantities. The talks of this workshop will introduce recent developments on the mathematics of mass and angular momentum.
