Techniques for Binary Black Hole Simulations
Author and Affiliation:
Baker, John G.(NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, MD, United States)
Abstract: Recent advances in techniques for numerical simulation of black hole systems have enabled dramatic progress in astrophysical applications. Our approach to these simulations, which includes new gauge conditions for moving punctures, AMR, and specific tools for analyzing black hole simulations, has been applied to a variety of black hole configurations, typically resulting in simulations lasting several orbits. I will discuss these techniques, what we've learned in applications, and outline some areas for further development.
