Title: Minkowski formulas and quasi-local mass
Abstract: The classical Minkowski formulas for curvature were extended to spacetimes in a paper of Wang, Wang, and Zhang, making use of the presence of conformal Killing-Yano tensors. We will look at the use of Minkowski formulas in spacetime to analyze a quasi-local mass definition given by Wang and Yau. We will then consider some applications to rigidity theorems if time allows.
