Elements of Numerical Relativity : From Einstein`s Equations to Black Hole Simulations

Spurred by the current development of numerous large-scale projects for detecting gravitational radiation, with the aim to open a completely new window to the observable Universe, numerical relativity has become a major field of research over the past years. Indeed, numerical relativity is the stand...
