Advances in Lorentzian geometry: proceedings of the Lorentzian geometry conference in Berlin. [Matthias Plaue; Alan D Rendall; M Scherfner;] -- This volume offers deep insight into the methods and concepts of a very active field of mathematics that has many connections with physics. Researchers and students will find it to be a useful source. The global theory of Lorentzian geometry has grown up, during the last twenty years, and[the authors] have given us an authoritative and highly readable treatment of the subject as it stands today."

Lorentzian geometry is a vivid field of mathematical research that can be seen as part of differential geometry as well as mathematical physics. It represents the mathematical foundation of the general theory of relativity - which is probably one of the most successful and beautiful theories of physics. Presented are contributions from several specialists in differential geometry and mathematical physics, collectively demonstrating the wide range of applications of Lorentzian geometry, and ranging in character from research papers to surveys to the development of new ideas. Comment: 19 pages, to appear in Advances in Geometry. Sections 5, 6 and 7 of old version are worked out in more detail at the beginning of "Arrangements of rational sections over curves and the. Thus, one might use ‘Lorentzian geometry’ analogously to Riemannian geometry (and insist on Minkowski geometry for our topic here), but usually one skips all the way to pseudo-Riemannian geometry (which studies pseudo-Riemannian manifolds, including both Riemannian and Lorentzian manifolds). Lorentzian Cartan geometry and first order gravity.

An Invitation to Lorentzian Geometry Olaf Muller and Miguel S anchezy Abstract The intention of this article is to give a avour of some global problems in General Relativity. We cover a variety of topics, some of them related to the fundamental concept of Cauchy hypersurfaces: (1) structure of globally hyperbolic spacetimes, (2) the Cited by: 1.
