General information

As well as being a beautiful piece of mathematics, Petrov's classification [of gravitational fields] led to much progress in the physics of general relativity. Petrov's classification scheme is, indeed, one of the major developments in Einstein's general relativity theory.

The day October 28, 2010 is the 100th anniversary of the birth of Alexey Zinovievich Petrov (1910-1972), an outstanding Soviet scientist in the field of general relativity and gravitation, the founder of the first and only one in the USSR Department of Relativity and Gravitation of Kazan State University (1960). To mark this significant event the international Symposium "Petrov 2010 Anniversary Symposium on General Relativity and Gravitation" will be held in Kazan, November 1-6, 2010.

Languages: Russian and English.

Scientific program will cover a wide selection of recent issues on Theoretical and Mathematical Physics as well as Geometry and Topology. The subjects covered in this conference will be among the following:
Classical and Quantum Gravity
String and Brane Theory
Supersymmetry and Supergravity
Black Holes and Wormholes
Cosmology and Astrophysics
Field Theory
Geometry and Topology
