Conformal methods and the global analysis of spacetimes

30 January 2013

Time: 4:30pm
Venue: Maths 103

The London Relativity and Cosmology Seminar
Juan Valiente Kroon (QMUL

The purpose of this talk is to provide a survey of conformal methods in General Relativity and their application to the study of global properties of spacetimes. As a demonstration of this approach I will discuss a recent result (in collaboration with C.Luebbe) showing the nonlinear stability of radiation FRW cosmological models.
