Show List of Speakers

Ever since the epic work of Yvonne Choquet-Bruhat on the well-posedness of Einstein's equations initiated the mathematical study of general relativity, women have played an important role in many areas of mathematical relativity. In this workshop, some of the leading women researchers in mathematical relativity present their work.   Bibliography (pdf) Accommodation: A block of rooms has been reserved at the Rose Garden Inn. Reservations may be made by calling 1-800-992-9005 OR directly on their website. Click on Corporate at the bottom of the screen and when prompted enter code MATH (this code is not case sensitive). By using this code a new calendar will appear and will show MSRI rate on all room types available. A block of rooms has been reserved at the Hotel Durant. Reservations may be made by calling 1-800-238-7268. When making reservations, guests must request the MSRI preferred rate.  If you are making your reservations on line, please go to this link and enter the promo/corporate code MSRI123.  Our preferred rate is $129 per night for a Deluxe Queen/King, based on availability. MSRI has a preferred rate of $149 - $189 plus tax at the Hotel Shattuck Plaza, depending on room availability. There is no cut-off date for reservations. Guests can either call the hotel's main line at 510-845-7300 and ask for the MSRI- Mathematical Science Research Inst. discount; or go to www.hotelshattuckplaza.com and enter dates of stay at top of screen and click Book Now.  Once on the reservation page, click "Preferred/Corporate Rate Accounts" and input the code: msri.
