9th Alexander Friedmann International Seminar on Gravitation and Cosmology

The objective of the meeting is to promote contacts between scientists working in the field of Relativity, Gravitation and Cosmology and related fields. It is well known that the important role in Gravitation and Cosmology is played by the Casimir effect. To underline this, special Satellite Symposia devoted to this effect have been included in the Programs of the 7th and 8th Friedmann Seminars. The Casimir effect is a multidisciplinary subject. Its applications extend from gravitation and cosmology to the van der Waals forces, materials properties and nanotechnology. All these subjects are traditionally touched at the Satellite Simposia on the Casimir effect.

Topics to be discussed:

  • Classical gravity
  • Observational and theoretical Cosmology
  • Quantum effects in curved spacetime
  • Casimir effect
  • Quantum gravity
  • Gravitational theory with extra dimensions
  • Geometrical aspects of gravitational theory
