Talk title: Progress in numerical relativity

Abstract: Complementing the spectacular breakthroughs in gravitational wave astronomy, advancements in our theoretical understanding and modeling of the strong field regime of gravity are essential to unlocking the full potential of the observations. I will survey some of the recent developments in using tools from numerical relativity to explore and make detailed predictions in this regime, and match the scope of new physics that might be uncovered. This expanding purview includes not only the mergers of black holes and neutron stars, but also the dynamics of more exotic compact objects, modifications of general relativity, and strong gravity signatures of new particles.

Time: July 7, Thursday, 23:00-24:00 (CST, UTC+8)
