Numerical Simulations of Black Holes

Frank Herrmann

University of Maryland


Abstract:   Numerical Relativity has made remarkable progress in the last years. In 2005 stable binary black hole simulations became first possible and since then a number of different aspects of this system have been studied. I will review different techniques in use today and describe comparison studies to post-Newtonian methods as well as results regarding the recoil the single black hole formed in a generic merger receives.
