PhD Colloquium – Benedict Schinnerl: Singularity-Theorems from Non-Trivial Topology

The talk will introduce some basic concepts from Lorentzian geometry and general relativity. After a short introduction to the subject of singularity theorems, which establish geodesic incompleteness in certain spacetimes, we will focus on a particular kind of singularity theorem which deduces incompleteness from non-simply connected topology. The so-called Gannon-Lee Theorem will be discussed as well as some of the ingredients for its proof.
