Einstein equations are the cornerstone of General Relativity. They are non-linear partial differential equations (PDE). The research in this field has a long history, and a longstanding interest in both mathematics and physics. My own interest lies within the mathematical aspects, and in particular with Einstein Equations that are coupled with a perfect fluid (relativistic flows). The main means to analyze this type of flows is to transfer them into a system of PDE, which results in a convoluted system consisting of both elliptic and hyperbolic types of equations. A major difficulty is that the density is not strictly positive in many situations. This phenomenon is called a physical vacuum and it causes substantial mathematical challenges that require novel approaches to investigate them.

I am also studying the topic of free boundary problems. The free refers here to an overdetermined system of equations and therefore the boundary of a domain, or the shape of a body, cannot be arbitrary. Such type problems arising from example in ice-melting, the evolution of oil spot surrounding by water and Hele-Shaw flows. These types of problems are related to potential theory and Quadrature Domains. A challenging open problem is the classification of Null quadrature domains, which means the classification of all domains such that the integral of all harmonic and integrable functions over them is zero. This topic actually goes back to Newton era and it is related to a classical theorem of Newton that an elliptical shell induces no gravitational force in the cavity. The classification in the plane has been known since the early eighteens of the last century, but in higher space dimensions it remains an open problem.
