Relativity and Geometry in memory of André Lichnerowicz

home program participants information

The year 2015 marks the centenary of Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity. It also corresponds to the 100th anniversary of the birth of André Lichnerowicz (1915-1998) whose contributions to geometry and mathematical physics, notably general relativity, have been fundamental. This Conference will provide an update on current research related to the work of Lichnerowicz.

The conference will start on December 14th morning at the Institut Henri Poincaré. On December 15th, the afternoon session will be held at the Collège de France and will include a short tribute to André Lichnerowicz. The conference will end on December 16th late afternoon.

The conference is an event of the thematic trimester Mathematical General Relativity.
