What is ... a spacetime singularity?

This page hosts information on Phillipo Lappicy's talk "What is ... a spacetime singularity?" at the "What is ...?" seminar. The talk will take place on Friday, November 30, 1pm at the BMS Loft at Urania. This talk will help you better understand the talk by Alan Rendall, which will start at 2pm.

We will again be ordering delivery pizza. If you would like to order pizza with us, please arrive to the "What is ...?" seminar by 12:45pm.


Trying to answer questions about space, time and gravity leads us to the notion of singularities - where the theory doesn't hold. In this talk, we'll introduce the basics of General Relativity and how it is related to dynamics.
