International Max-Planck Research School for Geometric Analysis, Gravitation and String Theory


The IMPRS for Geometric Analysis, Gravitation and String Theory aims to promote research in mathematical physics in an area related in the widest sense to Einstein's theory of general relativity, ranging from pure mathematics (differential geometry and the theory of partial differential equations) to the physics of black holes, gravitational waves and cosmological applications of Einstein's theory and all the way to the most recent efforts to reconcile Einstein's theory with quantum mechanics in the framework of superstring theory and M theory. The school started operating in January 2004.
