[1107.3703] Recent Advances in the Numerical Simulations of Binary Black Holes

Authors: Pedro Marronetti, Wolfgang Tichy

Date: 19 Jul 2011

Abstract: Since the breakthrough papers from 2005/2006, the field of numerical relativity has experienced a growth spurt that took the two-body problem in general relativity from the category of "really-hard-problems" to the realm of "things-we-know-how-to-do". Simulations of binary black holes in circular orbits, the holy grail of numerical relativity, are now tractable problems that lead to some of the most spectacular results in general relativity in recent years. We cover here some of the latest achievements and highlight the field's next challenges.
