Singularity studies: a bystander’s view

In this talk I shall describe some of the history of the development of the singularity theorems and the analysis of their nature as observed from my vantage point as a member of the Cambridge

An Astronomical Road to General Relativity: The Continuity between Classical and Relativistic Cosmology in the Work of Karl Schwarzschild

In this article it is argued that a continuity exists between Karl Schwarzschild's work on foundational problems on the borderline of physics and astronomy and his later occupation with general

La relativité générale au tournant des années soixante

During fifty years Einstein’s theory of gravitation was limited to a backward neo-newtonian interpretation. Nevertheless it was sufficient to as­sure its predominance in regard to Newton’s theory. In

Relativity Principles and Theories from Galileo to Einstein

Motion is always relative to something. Is this thing a concrete body like the earth, is it an abstract space, or is it an imagined frame? Do the laws of physics depend on the choice of reference?

Stellar equilibrium vs. gravitational collapse

The idea of gravitational collapse can be traced back to the first solution of Einstein’s equations, but in these early stages, compelling evidence to support this idea was lacking. Furthermore,

One could say that 2018 is very special year since 55 years ago quasars were discovered, the Kerr solution has been found and the First Texas Symposium on Relativistic Astrophysics has been

Painlevé in 1921, a breaking-through solution, in general relativity, totally misunderstood at that time !

Paul Painlevé (1863-1933), known as a politician, is also a mathematician. Initially circumspect about the theory of relativity, he published three notes at the Academy of Sciences. In the first one,
