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 3-manifolds. In this seminar we will study geometrial and physical properties of theses manifolds, such as mass, quasi-local 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.


Time and Place

The seminar takes places tuesdays at 2 p.m. in room E41. An organizational meeting will be held during the first session on April 20, 2004. Please contact me, if you are interested in participating.
