23/10/2019: "Black holes"



Carlos Herdeiro   (Departamento de Matemática UA and CIDMA)



Einstein's theory of general relativity is the perfect marriage between physics and mathematics.

It uses the elegant Riemannian geometry to describe, with enormous success, the gravitational interaction as warped spacetime. Black holes are the gravitational atoms: the simplest non-trivial solutions of this theory. In this talk, in a colloquium style, I shall first review some key (astro)physical and mathematical aspects of black holes. Then, I will present some recent results from our group’s research and discuss some important open questions in the field.





This Seminar is supported in part by the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT - Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia), through CIDMA - Center for Research and Development in Mathematics and Applications, within project UID/MAT/04106/2019.
