Mathematical Relativity: Past, Present, Future

Upon the occasion of the 100th birthday of Yvonne Choquet-Bruhat (29 December, 2023), whose 1952 paper on the Cauchy problem for the Einstein equations opened up the field of mathematical general relativity, this workshop brings together advanced doctoral students, promising young researchers, and leading experts in the field to discuss the spectacular recent developments in the area, to share and discuss techniques that have proven particularly successful, to assess new areas of contact, and to support existing and to promote new collaborations.
