Numerical Relativity in the Era of Gravitational Wave Observations

Presented by:

Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 
The birth and future of gravitational wave astronomy offers new opportunities and challenges for numerical methods in general relativity.
Numerical relativity in particular provides critical support to detect and interpret gravitational wave measurements. In this talk, I’ll discuss the role numerical relativity is playing in the observed black hole binaries by LIGO and Virgo and its future potential for unveiling strong-field gravity in future detections with an emphasis on the computational challenges. I'll frame a discussion about what demands will be placed on this field to maximize the science output of the new era.
