Organizing Committee
Abstract

The aim of this reunion meeting is to bring together the participants from the Fall 2020 program “advances in computational relativity” to work in a focused way towards solving the most pressing mathematical modeling and numerical simulation issues facing the gravitational wave community, and cultivating new subfields within mathematics that focus on important, pressing issues related to gravitational waves as well as providing mathematicians with new questions and problems to explore.

The areas of focus will be: (i) mathematical and computational approaches for solving the source-free Einstein field equations (a nonlinear, coupled, hyperbolic-elliptic PDE system) including fundamental aspects of general relativity or alternative theories of gravity, (ii) mathematical and computational approaches for the Einstein field equations with matter and magnetic fields, as well as the multi-scale, multi-physics modeling challenges for such problems, and (iii) methods for the detection, classification, and Bayesian inference of relativistic objects and gravitational-wave datasets, especially by considering under-explored techniques such as machine learning or uncertainty quantification.
