GCSW02 - Structure preservation and general relativity

Most numerical relativity simulations use the usual coordinate methods to put the Einstein field equations in the form of partial differential equations (PDE), which are then handled using more or less standard numerical PDE methods, such as finite differences. However, there are some advantages to instead using a tetrad (orthonormal) basis rather than the usual coordinate basis. I will present the tetrad method and its numerical uses, particularly for simulating the approach to a spacetime singularity. I will end with open questions about which tetrad systems are suitable for numerical simulations.
