Black hole initial data within the parabolic-hyperbolic formulation

Oct. 24 - 14:30 - 2019

Speaker: Anna Nakonieczna (University of Warsaw)

Title: Black hole initial data within the parabolic-hyperbolic formulation

The parabolic-hyperbolic formulation of the initial data of the Einstein equations for multiple black holes systems has been proposed recently [1-3]. It provides an alternative to the traditional conformal method [4]. During the talk, a numerical implementation of the above-mentioned evolutionary approach to the initial data problem of general relativity will be presented. It will involve a set of single black holes and a binary system composed of superposed Kerr-Schild black holes. The talk will be based on the paper [5].
