Three days’ workshop sponsored by the Inter-University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics (IUCAA)



(1) Prof. Aseem Paranjape (Coordinator-IUCAA)

(2) Prof. Anirudh Pradhan (Coordinator-GLAU)

Venue of the Workshop: Centre for Cosmology, Astrophysics and Space Science (CCASS), GLA University, Mathura, Uttar Pradesh

Time of the workshop: From November 24-26, 2022

Total number of participants: 35 (25 research scholars + 10 PG students) from all over India.

About the Workshop:

General relativity is now recognized in cosmology and astrophysics as an indispensable theoretical framework. Most striking and brilliant triumphs, such as the expansion of the Universe, black holes, gravitational waves, and lensing are heavily indebted to general relativity. Further, the new discoveries in cosmology and astrophysics in recent days including the LIGO have opened the passage to study and test the nature of gravitation and the evolution of the Universe.

This program consists lectures from introductory to research level to help PG students, research scholars and junior researchers to grasp the essence of the recent developments in GR, gravitation and cosmology and are encouraged to have intensive discussions and establish collaborations.

This workshop will train and expose young researchers working in the field of cosmology so that they can contribute to the rich and growing discipline of cosmological data analysis.

The topics to be covered by the workshop include:

  • general relativity
  • gravitation theories
  • black hole physics
  • early universe
  • dark matter and dark energy
