Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Application of methods from semi-Riemannian geometry in general relativity.

Assessment and permitted materials

Giving a talk and participating in discussions during the seminar.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

This seminar is intended to build a bridge between (semi-)Riemannian geometry as taught in mathematics departments and one of its central areas of application, the theory of relativity. In particular, we intend to take into account the different "cultures" (mathematics-physics) in approaching this topic.

Examination topics

Lectures of the participants.

Reading list

R. d'Inverno, Introducing Einstein's Relativity
B. O'Neill, Semi-Riemannian Geometry
R. M. Wald, General Relativity
