Abstract

The study of compact objects in the strong field regime needs a thorough understanding of the initial value problem in general relativity at the resence of hydrodynamical or magnetohydrodynamical sources. This is a twofold problem that includes general relativistic solutions that represent realistic astrophysical systems at a given moment in time as well as their subsequent evolutions. In this talk I will present the fundamental principles of this endeavor as well as efforts in understanding a great variety of astrophysical systems from binary neutron stars to ergostars and black hole-disks through numerical relativity.
