This is the second edition of the "Beyond Lorentzian Geometry" workshops. The first was held in Edinburgh in October 2019 and it was a resounding success.
Recent years have witnessed a growing interest in the study and application of non-Lorentzian geometries such as Newton-Cartan and Carrollian geometries. They feature in such diverse areas such as
- approximations of general relativity
- fluid dynamics and (soft)-condensed matter physics
- string theory
- asymptotically flat spacetimes (BMS symmetries)
- black hole physics
Geometry plays an important role in all of these areas and non-Lorentzian structures have been found to appear in worldsheet geometries, spacetime boundaries, string target spacetimes, near horizon geometries, non-relativistic field theories on nontrivial backgrounds, etc.
In this workshop we would like to bring together researchers working on both mathematical and physical aspects of these novel geometries.
