Workshop on the Interaction of Gravity with External Fields

October 1 - 5, 2003

Centre de recherches mathématiques,
Université de Montréal
Montréal (Québec), Canada

Organizers: F. Finster (Regensburg), N. Kamran (McGill)


Workshop on the Cauchy Problem for the Einstein Equations

The interaction of gravity with external fields is governed by highly coupled systems of partial differential equations on manifolds. The analysis of these systems leads to rigorous analytical results on fundamental questions such as the scattering of waves by black holes and the role of external fields in the dynamics of gravitational collapse and black hole formation.
The workshop will be preceded by one short course given by P. Forgacs (Tours). It will be simultaneous with the first series of Aisenstadt lectures for the year, to be delivered by S.T. Yau.
