The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) will host the "Time-like Boundaries in General Relativistic Evolution Problems" workshop in Oaxaca, from July 28, 2019 to August 2, 2019.

General Relativity’s second century will be marked by the analytical understanding of solutions in non-linear and global scenarios. Such solutions will play a crucial role in our understanding of such a fascinating theory as well as our ability to scrutinize the universe through gravitational waves and to explore strongly coupled field theories through holographic correspondences, to name just but two examples. Achieving such goals most often require dealing with boundaries which can be present deep in the domain of interest or asymptotically.

This workshop will bring a number of experts in the field as well as young researchers to work, discuss and collaborate to ensure a robust understanding of the problems and solutions associated with the presence of such boundaries within a multidisciplinary/multiexpertise environment.

The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, are collaborative Canada-US-Mexico ventures that provide an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station in Banff is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT). The research station in Oaxaca is funded by CONACYT
