New developments in NonRelativistic Gravity 
Speaker:  Blaise Rollier (Groningen) 
Abstract:  Recently, gravitational theories with nonrelativistic symmetries
have attracted renewed attention. One reason for this is their appearance as gravitational bulk theories in the context of nonAdS holography. In this talk, I will define a 'nonrelativistic conformal method? as the nonrelativistic version of the relativistic conformal method and show how it can be used to produce Galilean invariant theories of gravity. After introducing NewtonCartan geometry and gravity, I will show how the nonrelativistic conformal method can be used to derive HoravaLifshitz gravity and Torsional NewtonCartan gravity.
