Justin Corvino, assistant professor of mathematics, spoke on “The Einstein Constraint Equations” 4:10-5 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 19, in Pardee Hall room 216.

The open talk was part of the Lafayette-Lehigh Geometry and Topology Seminar.

His preview of the lecture: “We introduce the Einstein Constraint Equations from General Relativity. We will survey the interplay between the geometry, topology, and physics inherent in these equations, including the fundamental Positive Mass Theorem of Schoen and Yau, the Penrose Inequality, and as time permits, recent results about gluing solutions and black holes.”

Corvino is teaching Calculus II this fall. His research interests are differential geometry, general relativity, and partial differential equations. He received an M.S. and Ph.D. in mathematics from Stanford in 1996 and 2000, respectively, and a B.S. in mathematics with a minor in Physics from MIT in 1994.
