Abstract

Mathematical relativity, the subject of this conference, has recently become more and more devoted to the theory of nonlinear evolution equations, with global questions becoming ever more accessible. This is reflected by the fact that more than half of the talks given were concerned with the global dynamics of solutions of evolution equations related more or less directly to the Einstein equations of general relativity. Progress was reported in understanding subjects such as black holes, gravitational radiation, cosmology and the relation of general relativity to Newtonian gravitational theory.
