GCSW02 - Structure preservation and general relativity The motion of strongly gravitating fluid bodies is described by the Euler-Einstein system of partial differential equations. We report progress on formulating well-posed, acoustical and canonical hydrodynamic schemes, suitable for binary inspiral simulations and gravitational-wave source modelling. The schemes use a variational principle by Carter-Lichnerowicz stating that barotropic fluid motions are conformally geodesic, a corollary to Kelvin's theorem stating that initially irrotational flows remain irrotational, and Christodoulou's acoustic metric approach adopted to numerical relativity, in order to evolve the canonical momentum of a fluid element via Hamilton or Hamilton-Jacobi equations. These mathematical theorems leave their imprints on inspiral waveforms from binary neutron stars observed by the LIGO -Virgo detectors. We describe a constraint damping scheme for preserving circulation in numerical general relativity, in accordance with Helmholtz's third theorem.
