Black Holes: A Mathematical Enlightenment

Abstract: Black holes are important objects in our understanding of the universe and fundamental in the modern study of physics.

In this lecture we will explore how mathematics has enlightened the road to the understanding of black holes, from their very conception, through the discovery of their surprising geometric properties, till the more recent comprehension of their dynamics.
