Theme of the EuroConference

Hyperbolic problems in Astrophysics and Cosmology (relativistic compressible fluid models, the Einstein Field equations of General Relativity) are particularly challenging for the applied mathematician. They are essential in order to uncover the structure and formation of the Universe. Main topics: general relativity, linear and nonlinear hyperbolic equations, Riemann solvers, well-posedness theory for the Einstein equations, black hole geometries, interaction of gravity with other force fields, etc
