Geometric Foundations of Gravity 2019

Geometric Foundations of Gravity 2019

This conference was supported by the EU Regional Development Fund

is a conference dedicated to the geometric foundations of gravity theories that will take place June 17-21, 2019 in Tartu, Estonia. This conference is a continuation of series of conferences Geomgrav 2017 and Telegrav 2018.

The main topics include:

  • Gauge theories of gravity (Poincare, teleparallel, …)
  • Scalar/vector/tensor extensions of general realtivity (f(R) gravity, scalar-tensor and multiscalar-tensor, Horndeski and beyond, generalized Proca, massive gravity and bimetric theories, …)
  • Beyond Lorentzian geometry (Finsler geometry, modified dispersion relations, …)
  • Dynamical systems in gravity (Cosmological evolution as dynamical system, …)

The conference is organized by the Laboratory of Theoretical Physics, University of Tartu.
