on asymmetries in the universe. There were discussions on the neutrino contents of the universe and on the K background radiation.And there was discussion of quantum mechanics in general relativistic context, not only of Hawking radiation, the important theoretical discovery of the 1970s that particles are steadily created in the background geometry of a black hole, but also of quantum gravity and supergravity. To the listener at this conference, these last two topics, more than anything else, brought home most strikingly how much still remains to be done in general relativity.
