›Relativity and Gravitation - 100 Years after Einstein in Prague
At the beginning of April 1911 Albert Einstein arrived in Prague to become full professor of theoretical physics at the German part of Charles University. It was there, for the first time, that he concentrated primarily on the problem of gravitation. Before he left Prague in July 1912 he had submitted the paper “Relativität und Gravitation: Erwiderung auf eine Bemerkung von M. Abraham” in which he remarkably anticipated what a future theory of gravity should look like.
At the occasion of the Einstein-in-Prague centenary we organize an international meeting
The main topics of the conference will include
- Mathematical relativity
- Numerical relativity
- Relativistic astrophysics
- Relativistic cosmology
- Quantum gravity
- Gravitation and experiment
- Conceptual and historical issues
