Numerical Simulation of Binary Black Hole Spacetimes and a Novel Approach to Outer Boundary Conditions

Jennifer Seiler
With ground-based gravitational wave detectors at design sensitivity, and a space-based detector in planning stages, the need for accurate gravitational wave templates for signal recognition by detector pipelines has become an urgent problem. With that in mind, and the fact that binary black hole inspirals and mergers are the strongest potential source for gravitational wave signals for online detectors, my research has focused on improving the accuracy and well-posedness of numerical simulations, and on the...
