Thursday 21 March, 2013 10:00 to 11:00 Conference
Using numerical relativity to explore fundamental physics and astrophysics
Speaker: Luciano Rezzolla, Albert Einstein Institute

Authors: Luciano Rezzolla

Recent years have seen a major progress in numerical relativity and the solution of the simplest and yet among the most challenging problems in classical general relativity: that of the evolution of two objects interacting only gravitationally. I will review the results obtained so far when modelling binaries of black holes or of neutron stars and also discuss the impact these studies have in detection of gravitational-waves, in astrophysics, and in our understanding of general relativity.
