We would like to invite you to the second workshop as part of the semester-long program “Advances in Computational Relativity”.

This second workshop will focus on theoretical and computational approaches to solving the vacuum Einstein field equations (the master equation of general relativity: a nonlinear, coupled, hyperbolic-elliptic PDE system) without matter field sources. A particular important special case is the simulation of two merging black holes, which will be emphasized throughout the workshop. Gravitational wave solutions will be another important aspect of this workshop, and special attention will be given to modeling techniques for the computation of these waves. Important, recent advances in mathematical aspects of Einstein’s theory of general relativity will also be a central topic of the workshop.

Due to COVID-19, this workshop will be held online.

Please apply using the link “Apply with Cube” at the workshop website if you would like to participate in this workshop.
