2011 Summer School & Workshop:
Weak and Strong Gravitational Lensing

Overview

The field of gravitational lensing has progressed rapidly in the past decade or so. It has found broad applications in astronomy and holds promise for addressing fundamental questions of the universe, such as the nature of dark matter and dark energy. It is also a crucial technique for several future large-scale surveys, including those proposed in China.

This program covers weak and strong gravitational lensing by galaxies, clusters, and the large-scale structure of the universe. The goal of the summer school is to familiarize students and junior researchers with the lensing technique and processes of turning raw observational data into science. We plan to have several lectures every day during the summer school and reserve some time for more discussions and interactions in several afternoons. Forefront research topics will be discussed during the workshop.
