The Null Shell Penrose Inequality in Anti-de Sitter

General Relativity, Geometry and Analysis: beyond the first 100 years after Einstein

30 October 16:00 - 17:00

Ingemar Bengtsson - Stockholm University

The Penrose inequality for a shell of null dust collapsing into Minkowski space has not quite been proven yet. Some time ago Emma Jakobsson and I convinced ourselves that it would be easier to prove it in anti-de Sitter space. I will describe the work we did, up to the point where we got stuck.

Please note: The venue for this seminar is the old seminar room in the main building of the institute.
