International School on Gravity, Cosmology and Astrophysics


   The school is conducted by the Faculty of Fundamental Sciences, Bauman Moscow State Technical University

   This summer school on gravity is held at Bauman Moscow State Technical University for the second time. The first school was held in 2019 with the participation of Russian and foreign lecturers and listeners.

   One of the main goals of the school is to attract talented Russian young students to research in the field of fundamental physics, introducing them to the main problems, ideas, and methods of studying the modern gravity theory and cosmology.

   The program is designed for enthusiastic senior students majoring in theoretical physics. The working languages of the school are Russian and English.

   Within the framework of the summer school, lectures and practical classes will be given in the following areas:

  • Special and general relativity theory
  • Cosmology
  • Black holes and wormholes
  • Exact solutions in general relativity and modified gravity theories
  • Gravitational waves: sources and detectors

   An important place in the school curriculum is occupied by the problem of theoretical and experimental research of gravitational waves, which, at present, is one of the key issues of modern physics.

   After listening to lectures and seminars, school participants receive the necessary basic knowledge to independently design various sources and detectors of gravitational waves, and can present their models of sources and detectors as well. The presented models will be discussed at the final meeting of the school, at which they will receive an expert assessment of specialists.    


    Dates: July 5th, – July 15th, 2021.

    Venue: Bauman Moscow State Technical University, Russia.

International School on Gravity, Cosmology, and Astrophysics 2019


  In the period from July 1 to July 14, in parallel with the PIRT-2019 conference, at the Bauman Moscow State Technical University also hosted a summer youth school  on Gravity, Cosmology, and Astrophysics for students from Russia, Great Britain and Vietnam under the guidance of Prof. V.I. Pustovoit and Prof. V.O. Gladyshev.

  The first part of the school was devoted to lectures on topical issues of the modern theory of gravity, cosmology and astrophysics, which were read by A. A. Starobinsky (Russia), P. Rowlands (Great Britain), I. Pinto (Italy), A. Bisham (South Africa), B. Mishra (India), S. Tripati (India), V. O. Gladyshev (Russia), S. V. Chervon (Russia), S. F. Levin (Russia), S. V. Siparov (Russia), I. V. Fomin (Russia) and V.L. Kauts (Russia).

  In the second part, practical classes were held on the issues of building cosmological models, experimental studies of cosmological, astrophysical and artificially created gravitational waves and the physics of dark matter.

  At the end of the school, reports were presented by the participants on the topic of constructing cosmological models of the early universe, various types of sources of gravitational waves and projects for their detection.
