1. Introduction. It is well known that methods of algebraic geometry and, in particular, Riemann surface techniques are well suited for the solution of nonlinear integrable equations. For instance, for nonlinear evolution equations, so called 'finite gap' solutions have been found by the help of these methods. In 1989 Korotkin [9] succeeded in applying these techniques to the Ernst equation, which is equivalent to Einstein's vacuum equation for axisymmetric stationary fields. But, the Ernst equation...

A mini-introduction to critical phenomena in gravitational collapse is combined with a more detailed discussion of how gravity regularizes the 'critical spacetimes' that dominate these phenomena.

Modular and quasimodular forms have played an important role in gravity and string theory. Eisenstein series have appeared systematically in the determination of spectrums and partition functions, in the description of non-perturbative effects, in higher-order corrections of scalar-field spaces, ...The latter often appear as gravitational instantons i.e. as special solutions of Einstein’s equations. In the present lecture notes we present a class of such solutions in four dimensions, obtained by...
