Cambridge University Press; 1 edition August 16, Language: BSSN equations in spherical coordinates without regularization: While Cartesian coordinates are well suited for many applications, in particular simulations of binaries, spherical polar coordinates have some desirable properties for simulations of single objects, for example gravitational collapse and supernova explosions.

Many current numerical relativity codes in three spatial dimensions share several features: Numerous illustrations, many in color, assist in visualizing new shaporo concepts and highlighting the results of computer simulations.
