What is it? 

This is a platform including a directory of scientists working in general relativity both from the mathematical side and from the numerical and gravitational physics side. 

It lists professors on a tenure and tenure track level as well as postdocs in the field. Their contact information, research interests and personal websites are provided. 

On this website we also collect updates on the latest research. Moreover, it provides a sample of some of the most important questions, that people are working on or are seeking answers for from the community. 


To enable and foster scientific exchange between the groups working in general relativity, in particular to bring closer together the mathematical and physical groups. 

To communicate interesting research. 

Researchers in general relativity to ask questions, they would like to be answered by other groups. 


Whom it is for. 

1. All the scientists working in general relativity or related areas. In particular, mathematicians, physicists and astrophysicists. 

2. Are you a mathematician in this field and wonder if a numerical relativist or a physicist may have some interesting input for your problem? 

3. Are you from the numerical and physical group and ask yourself if a mathematician may add a fresh idea to your problem? 

4. Are you a conference organizer and would like to have a broad representation of research in general relativity, but you do not know of anybody outside your special field? There are many more scientists working in general relativity than you think. We are sure that you will find someone among the people listed on this website to make a great contribution to your conference.
