Location:  Online

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

This third workshop will focus on theoretical and computational approaches to solving the Einstein field equations (the master equation of general relativity: a nonlinear, coupled, hyperbolic-elliptic PDE system) with (fluid) matter field sources, as typical of binary neutron stars and supernovae. Simulations of these systems are targets of interest to both LIGO and telescopes such as Hubble, Fermi, and CHANDRA. In this workshop, special attention will be given to the governing equations of relativistic (magneto-)hydrodynamics and multi-scale, multi-physics modeling challenges. The workshop will feature talks from physics, (applied) mathematics, and astrophysics communities as well as topical panel discussions.

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.
