Title: Self-Similarity and Naked Singularities for the Einstein Vacuum Equations

Abstract: We will start with an introduction to the problem of constructing naked singularities for the Einstein vacuum equations, and then explain our discovery of a fundamentally new type of self-similarity and show how this allows us to construct solutions corresponding to a naked singularity. Some of this is joint work with Igor Rodnianski.
