Spacetime Convex Functions and Sectional Curvature  Spacelike Hypersurfaces in the LorentzMinkowski Space with the Same Riemannian and Lorentzian Mean Curvature  Null Hypersurfaces on Lorentzian Manifolds and Rigging Techniques  Recent Results on Oscillator Spacetimes  Antide Sitter Spacetimes and Isoparametric Hypersurfaces in Complex Hyperbolic Spaces 

This volume contains a collection of research papers and useful surveys by experts in the field which provide a representative picture of the current status of this fascinating area. Based on contributions from the VIII International Meeting on Lorentzian Geometry, held at the University of Malaga, Spain, this volume covers topics such as distinguished (maximal, trapped, null, spacelike, constant mean curvature, umbilical...) submanifolds, causal completion of spacetimes, stationary regions and horizons in spacetimes, solitons in semiRiemannian manifolds, relation between Lorentzian and Finslerian geometries and the oscillator spacetime. In the last decades Lorentzian geometry has experienced a significant impulse, which has transformed it from just a mathematical tool for general relativity to a consolidated branch of differential geometry, interesting in and of itself. Nowadays, this field provides a framework where many different mathematical techniques arise with applications to multiple parts of mathematics and physics. This book is addressed to differential geometers, mathematical physicists and relativists, and graduate students interested in the field
