Numerical Evolution of 5D Asymptotically AdS Spacetimes
Speaker(s): Frans Pretorius
Abstract: I will describe a new numerical effort to solve Einstein gravity in 5-dimensional asymptotically Anti de Sitter spacetimes (AdS). The motivation is the gauge/gravity duality of string theory, with application to scenarios that on the gravity side are described by dynamical, strong-field solutions. F... read more

Simulation of Binary Black Hole Mergers
Speaker(s): Frans Pretorius
Abstract: I will describe some recent advances in the simulation of binary black hole spacetimes using a numerical scheme based on generalized harmonic coordinates. After a brief overview of the formalism and method, I will present results from the evolution of a couple of classes of initial data, including C... read more
