Mathematical Relativity and the Cosmic Censorship Conjecture

Einstein's general theory of relativity has always been a great catalyst for mathematical development, from Riemannian geometry to partial differential equations. In this talk we give a mathematical history of the subject, aiming to explain one of its most important open problems, the strong cosmic censorship conjecture.
