Abstract: 

There has been a natural connection between geometry and gravity since Einstein. In this talk, we will discuss some geometrical problems relating to the positivity of the total energy-momentum in general relativity. The unsolved problems on the collision and the nonlinear stability of black holes will also be discussed.
