Mathematical Relativity Seminar

*This page groups sessions by Lecture Series adding global information about the series when available.*

This is an introductory course on the wave equation, to be delivered in weekly two-hour sessions.

Topics to be covered include Fourier and physical space methods, existence and uniqueness of solutions to linear equations with constant or variable coefficients, energy estimates, vector fields, Strichartz estimates and local/global well posedness for nonlinear wave equations. Time permitting, singularity formation and geometric optics may also be addressed.
