Description

Richard Schoen
Stanford and UC Irvine

Location: Kirwan Hall 3206

Abstract: This talk will be a survey of some of the geometric problems and ideas which either arose from general relativity or have direct bearing on the Einstein equations.
It is intended for a general mathematical audience with minimal physics background.
Topics will include an introduction to the Cauchy problem for the Einstein equations, problems related to gravitational mass which are closely related to the Riemannian geometry of positive scalar curvature, and trapped surfaces which are related to the mean curvature and minimal surfaces.
