Hans Bantilan (London): Numerical Simulations of Asymptotically AdS Spacetimes

Freitag, 10. November 2017, 13:00

Ort: common room, Währinger Str. 17, 1st floor

The main purpose of this talk is to describe, by way of concrete examples, how the field of numerical relativity now contributes to our understanding of open questions in heavy-ion physics, gravitational collapse, and turbulence. I will begin by motivating these studies in terms of the physical systems that they are intended to clarify, and I will provide specific examples of how to describe these systems with numerical simulations of asymptotically AdS spacetimes in the fully non-linear regime of general relativity.
