Jürgen Ehlers Spring School
The AEI in Potsdam offers a crash course on Gravitational Physics, General Relativity, Black Holes and Gravitational-Wave Astrophysics. This course can be attended by students studying from the 5th semester Physics or Mathematics.

The spring school will first introduce general relativity; we will then discuss black holes, gravitational waves, cosmology, quantum field theory, and quantum gravity. We will cover in particular the recent discoveries of merging black hole and neutron star. We also give insights into current research at the institute, both related to gravitational waves and beyond.

Lectures will take place daily during the morning. In the afternoons, we provide exercises and the opportunity for questions and discussions. We also plan two excursions to sights in the vicinity of Potsdam.

Online registration is open until December 3, 2023.
