Cosmology, Relativity, and Gravity | Geometry and Topology
What is the shape of the universe? Michael Hitchman investigates this question, considers its ties to geometry and topology, and discusses some strategies in cosmic topology for (possibly) answering it. This presentation is part of a five-lecture series focusing on different aspects of astronomy and cosmology.
