Abstract:
I will discuss some recent work on the problem of motion in general relativity, done in collaboration with Bob Geroch (Chicago).  I will introduce a sense in which a collection of bodies -- including the solutions to some hyperbolic system -- could be said to "track" a curve, and then discuss some of the consequences of this idea.  See arXiv:1707.04222 [gr-qc] for details.
