Visualization in Numerical Relativity
Numerical Relativity deals essentially with the numerical solution of Einstein's field equations for General Relativity. This includes the investigation of black holes, neutron stars, gravitational waves and relativistic hydrodynamics. Outputs of these numerical simulations are scalar, vector and tensor fields. There are many methods for the analysis and visualization of such scalar, vector and tensor fields, but many of them make assumptions that are valid only in a non-relativistic regime. The aim of this project is the development of new methods for the analysis and visualization of relativistic scalar, vector and tensor fields. Further information is available in the detailed project description.
