The geometry of static and stationary matter configurations in relativity

Friday, November 13, 2009 -
3:00pm to 5:00pm
There are a number of interesting questions and some recent results concerning the geometry of equilibrium matter and black hole configurations for the Einstein equations. In this talk we will give background on these questions and survey known results. We will then describe recent work with R. Beig and G. Gibbons on the problem.
