This workshop is both an event in the Monash Summer Visitor Program and an occasion to celebrate Robert Bartnik's 60th birthday. In line with Robert's research interests, the focus will be on topics in analysis, geometry, and mathematical relativity.
The workshop is open to anyone with an interest in analysis, geometry or general relativity. There is no registration fee, but all participants must register. Early registration is strongly recommended as the total number of participants is limited by the capacity of the lecture theatre. The deadline for registration is 4 Jan 2016.
