A German translation of the public-outreach movie on the recent breakthrough made at the AEI has been produced and can be viewed at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pXjbYA5mSFo The original English version can instead be found at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ow9JCXy1QdY These movies, together with other non-official … Continue reading
Dr. Seth Hopper joins the numerical-relativity group as new postdoc working on binary black holes. Dr.Hopper has just received his PhD from the University of North Carolina with a thesis on “Gravitational Waveforms of Extreme Mass Ratio Inspirals”.
A simulation performed on our supercomputer cluster shows that the collision oftwo neutron stars can naturally produce the magnetic structures thought to power the high-speed particle jets associated with short gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). The study provides the most detailed glimpse of … Continue reading
Professor Tomasz Bulik, of the University of Warsaw, has arrived at the institute for a three day visit. He will be giving a seminar on “Stellar mass binary black holes: formation scenarios and merger rates”.
It is a great honour and pleasure for us to announce that the 2010 IOP Gravitational Physics Group’s Thesis Prize, which is co-sponsored by Classical and Quantum Gravity, was awarded to Dr Barry Wardell, a member of the AEI Numerical … Continue reading
Following the tradition started a few years ago, the members of the Numerical Relativity Group and of the IT Department would like to invite you to the 2011 edition of the Cluster-Day@AEI. As in the past, the meeting is meant … Continue reading
The group is hosting the spring meeting of the SFB/TR7. More information can be found here
Riccardo Ciolfi, who recently finished his PhD Thesis from the University of Rome La-Sapienza, has arrived at the AEI to work with us for several months. He will be continuing his study of the structure and equilibria of magnetized neutron … Continue reading
The website of the Numerical Relativity group has been replaced with a new version. The new site is built using WordPress, which will hopefully make it much easier to keep up-to-date.
Three postdoctoral positions are anticipated for 2011-2012. More information here
