Seminar:- Surface Geometry and General Relativity
Many classical results regarding surfaces in 3-dimensional Euclidean space, such as Weyl’s isometric embedding problem and the Minkowski inequality, have their counterparts for surfaces in space-time. These generalizations are not only of mathematical interest, but also of physically relevant importance. They are closely related to fundamental concepts such as gravitational energy and cosmic censorship. In this lecture, the speaker would discuss some recent developments in these directions.
