Séminaire de Physique Théorique

Numerical relativity, boson stars and geons
Philippe Grandclément (LUTH, Observatoire de Paris)
Thursday 14 March 2019 14:00 -  Tours -  Salle 1180 (Bât E2)

Résumé :
A will briefly present an efficient class of numerical methods to solve partial differential equations : the spectral method. I will in particular focus on a rather general tool that implements those methods : the Kadath library. I will then present two applications. First I will show results on boson stars, a class of self-gravitating objects that are a possible alternative to the black hole model. Second, I will discuss the nature of self-trapped packet of gravitational waves, in the presence of a negative cosmological constant: the so-called gravitational geons.
