Description
A school organized under the auspices of the French Mathematical Society «Etats de la recherche» program and within the French national centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) «Thematic schools» framework.

The goal of the school is to introduce a broad audience of mathematicians and young researchers to a selection of currently very active fields of research. It will be centered on themes of high current interest in mathematical relativity, with a strong emphasis on the differential geometric side of the theory. Ph. D students are especially invited to attend.

      Lecture room SC 10.01, building #10

      Science Campus, University of Montpellier

      In the lectures I plan to discuss the geometry of spherically symmetric black holes, that of the Kerr black hole, and of the Emperan-Reall black rings. Conformal and projection diagrams will be discussed, and some elements of the theory of uniqueness of stationary black holes will be presented.

      Lecture room SC 10.01, building #10

      Science Campus, University of Montpellier

      In the first two lectures I will describe the basic results on the significance, existence, and properties of apparent horizons (or more precisely “marginally outer trapped surfaces”) in initial data sets. Taking into account the preferences of the audience, I will then sketch the proofs of one or two fundamental results in mathematical relativity that build on this theory. The possibilities include the minimal surface proof of the Riemannian positive energy theorem, the marginally outer trapped surface proof of the spacetime positive mass theorem, and the existence of black holes due to condensation of matter.

      On the center of mass in General Relativity (short talk) 40m Lecture room SC 10.01, building #10 (Science Campus, University of Montpellier)

      Lecture room SC 10.01, building #10

      Science Campus, University of Montpellier

      In many situations in Newtonian Gravity, understanding the motion of the center of mass of a system is key to understanding the general "trend" of the motion of the system. It is thus desirable to also devise a notion of center of mass with similar properties in General Relativity. However, while the definition of the center of mass via the mass density is straightforward in Newtonian Gravity, there is a priori no definitive corresponding notion in General Relativity. Instead, there are several alternative approaches to defining the center of mass of a system. We will discuss some of these different approaches for both asymptotically Euclidean and asymptotically hyperbolic systems and present some new ideas as well as explicit (counter-)examples.

      Instability phenomena for the Einstein-Lichnerowicz equation (short talk) 40m Lecture room SC 10.01, building #10, Science Campus (University of Montpellier)

      Lecture room SC 10.01, building #10, Science Campus

      University of Montpellier

      The stability of the Einstein-Lichnerowicz equation is defined as the continuous dependence of the set of its positive solutions in the choice of the background physics data of the conformal method. When the conditions ensuring stability fail, surprising phenomena can arise, such as the existence of an infinite number of concentrating positive solutions. In this talk we will investigate some of these instability phenomena for the Einstein-Lichnerowicz equation when a non-trivial scalar field is present.

      Localized solutions of the Einstein equations: a few words about their geometry and physics (short talk) 40m Lecture room SC 10.01, building #10 (Science Campus, University of Montpellier)

      Lecture room SC 10.01, building #10

      Science Campus, University of Montpellier

      It is a truly surprising fact that the Einstein constraint equations own an overabundance of localized solutions, namely solutions that coincide with arbitrarily-assigned data inside a given solid cone and are trivial outisde of a cone of slightly larger angle. In this talk, I will briefly present them and comment on their physical relevance (related to gravitational shielding phenomena) as well as on their geometric content (which concerns the link with the isoperimetric problem, large outlying CMC spheres and stable minimal surfaces). This is mostly based on joint work with Richard Schoen.
