Workshop

Hyperbolic
operators on Lorentzian manifolds and
quantization

10.11.2005 - 12.11. 2005

Organizers: Christian Bär (Potsdam), Helga Baum (Berlin), Klaus Fredenhagen (Hamburg)

The
workshop will bring together
mathematicians interested in geometric and analytic aspects of
hyperbolic operators on Lorentzian manifolds and physicists working in
quantum field theory on curved spacetimes. The aim is to discuss recent
results and open problems in the field.

Invited speakers include: B. Ammann (Nancy), R. Brunetti (Hamburg), C. Fewster (York), F. Finster (Regensburg), G. Hollands (Göttingen), G. Huisken (AEI Potsdam), W. Junker (Hannover), I. Kath (MPI Leipzig), M. Sanchez (Granada), E. Schrohe (Hannover), R. Verch (Leipzig)

The workshop will include the following series of introductory lectures for PhD students and younger scientists, given by Chr. Bär, N. Ginoux and F. Pfäffle (Potsdam):

The workshop will take place during the ESI-program "Geometry of pseudo-Riemannian manifolds with applications in Physics" held at the Erwin Schrödinger Insitute in Vienna, September - December 2005. It is supported by the DFG-Schwerpunktprogramm 1154 "Global Differential Geometry", the Erwin Schrödinger Institute and the SFB 647 "Space-Time-Matter. Analytic and Geometric Structures" .
