Summary:
This book contains lectures given by leading scientists from internationally reputed centers of research and teaching who provide insight into the state of the art of scientific computing in relativity. It is split into four parts covering numerics, computer algebra, visualization, and exotic smoothness on spacetime. As well as introducing the techniques the authors stress the importance of combining complementary  Read more...

Abstract:

For this set of lectures we assumed that the reader has a reasonable back- ground in physics and some knowledge of general relativity, the modern theory of gravity in macrophysics, and cosmology.  Read more...
