CV PhD's thesis (french) and summary of results (english). Reserche statement
My working domain is Lorentzian geometry. In particular I'm studying Lorentzian manifolds which are conformally flat globally hyperbolic space-times of dimension greater then 3. The basic example of this kind of manifolds is Minkowski space-time. Constant curvature space-times are classical examples of conformally flats space-times. The causal structure of a Lorentzian manifold is a conformal invariant, and in the case of globally hyperbolic space-times it has a lot of interesting properties. In dimension greater then 3 conformally flats space-times are manifolds which are locally modeled on Einstein's universal space-time. Using the theory of geometric structures and classical causality theory (coming from general relativity) it is possible to better understand conformally flat globally hyperbolic space-times and find new examples. I'm now particularly interested to the case of similarity Lorentzian manifolds.
I'm in the ANR projet Extensions of Teichmueller-Thurston theories (ETTT).
