General Relativity is a beautiful physical theory which has successfully predicted many natural phenomena such as black holes and gravitational waves. Since Yvonne Choquet-Bruhat’s seminal work in the 1960’s, it has attracted the attention of mathematicians whose attention is caught by the fascinating interactions between the differential geometric setting of the theory, the partial differential Einstein equations describing the behavior of gravitational systems, and the intimate connections with mathematical and theoretical physics.
The aim of the minisymposium is to discuss recent progress in this very active subfield of geometric analysis in a way that is also inviting for young and experienced researchers from neighboring disciplines.
This Minisymposium is sponsored by the SPP 2026.
