Introduction to the 3+1 Einstein equations

Monday, June 24, 2002 - 2:30pm - 3:20pm
Keller 3-180
Robert Bartnik (University of Canberra)
The talk introduces some aspects of the Einstein equations which are of direct interest in numerical relativity. Topics covered include the geometry of the 3+1 formalism, the constraint equations and the conformal method for solving the constraints, the classical linearized equations, and the ADM energy-momentum.
