This summer, Community of Physics is organizing, for the very first time, a workshop on General Relativity titled “1st Workshop on General Relativity.”
General Relativity is a theory of gravitation that was developed by Albert Einstein in the early 20th century. It describes gravity as a curvature of spacetime caused by the presence of mass and energy. This theory has helped us to understand the behavior of objects on both astrophysical and cosmic scale, from the movement of planets in our solar system to the evolution of the universe as a whole.
General Relativity can be a challenging topic for many students, as it involves complex mathematical concepts and a radical new way of thinking about the nature of gravity and space-time. However, with proper understanding of the theory and its applications, one cannot help finding it fascinating and rewarding to explore the depths of this fundamental theory. If you have always been mesmerized by the elegant equations of General Relativity, then this is the perfect opportunity for you.
In our upcoming workshop, we will begin by delving into the language of differential geometry, which is essential for gaining a foundational understanding of General Relativity. Participants will be introduced to Riemann and Einstein tensors, and explore their geometrical significance. We will derive the Einstein equation and highlight its fundamental differences from Newtonian gravitation. The workshop will conclude with an opportunity for participants to apply their newfound knowledge by solving the Einstein equation for some simple systems. A detailed list of topics covered in the workshop is available on the event page.
The registration fee for the workshop is decided to an amount of BDT 1500. It enables us to provide the participants a seamless experience by means of imparting lunches, snacks, souvenirs, etc. on each day of the workshop.
The selection process is need-blind. The applicant may request for a partial or full waiver (scholarship) upon selection. Community of Physics will pay the fee (or a portion of it) on behalf of the selected applicant if the request for their scholarship is accepted.
Any undergraduate student from any major can apply to participate in this workshop. However, we expect a strong statement of purpose (SOP) in the application.
The registration fee for this workshop is BDT 1500.
