ABSTRACT


Topics Covered, Preliminary Course Outline: 

1) Theoretical foundations of NumRel for time evolution problems (taking BH binaries as example). This will be the major part and includes:

- 3+1 formulation,
- initial data problem,
- hyperbolicity and well-posed Cauchy formulations of Einstein's equations,
- wave extraction and apparent horizons
2) Basic numerical methods

3) Hands-on:
- introduction to xtensor; see http://xact.es/
- introduction to the open-source Einstein Toolkit; see http://einsteintoolkit.org/
