Energy Inequalities in General Relativity
The total energy of an isolated gavitating system in general
relativity is described by a geometric invariant of asymptotically
flat Riemannian 3manifolds. In this seminar we will study geometrial
and physical properties of theses manifolds, such as mass, quasilocal
mass, the center of mass, and energy inequalities. Recent results on
the Penrose inequalities, inverse curvature flow and constant mean
curvature surfaces will be discussed.
