Computing Initial Conditions

Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)

Abstract

We employ BH–NS binaries in quasiequilibrium states for initial conditions of our numerical simulations. In this chapter, we describe the formulation for the computation of a quasiequilibrium state. The details of the formulation and numerical methods, except for the issues on the BH spin, are described in [1], and the issues related to the BH spin are described in [2]. Computations of the quasiequilibrium states are performed using the spectral-method library LORENE [3].

Keywords

Apparent Horizon Extrinsic Curvature Shift Vector Hamiltonian Constraint Lapse Function 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
