Numerical Relativity: from Black Hole collisions to the Quark-Gluon Plasma

Author: Miguel Zilhao

 

Abstract: We give a brief overview on the field of Numerical Relativity, discussing its history, major milestones and recent developments. Furthermore, I will explain how we can now use these tools to evolve Black Holes collisions as well as simulate the Quark-Gluon plasma, formed in relativistic colliders such as RHIC or the LHC.
