Physics - Astrophysics, Gravitation, and Cosmology Seminar

The Einstein Toolkit is a open source, community driven framework to simulate astrophysical processes using supercomputers.

From its inception the goal was to provide state of the art codes for well defined science problems, starting with a general relativistic hydrodynamics code suitable for supernova simulations and binary neutron stars. I will give an overview of the Einstein Toolkit's current status, ongoing developments and future plans for the Toolkit.
