NZMRI summer workshop for 2020
Mathematical Aspects of General Relativity

Dates: 13–19 January 2020
Venue: Tahuna Beach, Nelson, New Zealand

This summer school is one of an annual series organized by the NZMRI (New Zealand Mathematics Research Institute), with the theme for January 2020 being the mathematical aspects of general relativity. See also the related conference on the Geometry of Quantum Fields and Strings, 10–12 January 2020, at the University of Auckland, New Zealand.

Lectures start on Tuesday 14 January, and finish at lunchtime on Sunday 19 January.

Speakers

  • Edward Witten
  • Clifford Taubes
  • Piotr Chrusciel

The summer school is aimed primarily at mathematics PhD students – there would also be a significant number of senior mathematicians attending, but relatively few would have any significant background in general relativity.

The meeting website is at http://sms.victoria.ac.nz/Events/AotearoaGR2020/WebHome and includes a registration form.

Please register as soon as possible.
