A co-publication of the AMS and Fields Institute

This volume is the refereed proceedings of the Sixth Canadian
Conference on General Relativity and Relativistic Astrophysics held in
May 1995 at the University of New Brunswick. The book includes invited
talks and contributed talks and posters including state-of-the-art
reviews of many of the most recent important developments in
gravitational physics. This book would serve as a good supplement to
standard texts on the topic.

Features:

- Review articles in key areas: black holes, numerical relativity, etc.
- Contributions covering most of gravitational physics.
- Useful articles for students who wish to begin exploring the issues discussed.
- Invited talks given by researchers known for their ability to communicate their expertise.

Titles in this series are co-published with the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences (Toronto, Ontario, Canada).

#### Readership

Graduate students, mathematicians, theoretical and mathematical physicists interested in general relativity and high energy physics; astrophysicists, astronomers, and differential geometers.
