Infinity on a Gridshell

In recent years, hyperboloidal methods have started to play a critical role in black-hole perturbation theory as they have expanded into diverse applications such as the computation of long-time wave equations, quasi-normal modes, alternative theories of gravity, effective-one-body formalism, and self-force. Extensive progress has been achieved during the past decade, with many developments targeting the generic solution of nonlinear Einstein equations.


This workshop aims to bring together leading experts to review and summarize the progress in hyperboloidal methods. Our goal is to assess the current state-of-the-art of these methods in a wide range of applications and to foster new collaborations. We will particularly focus on solving the full Einstein equations for astrophysically relevant scenarios.

David Hilditch
Assistant Professor

I work on mathematical topics in numerical relativity. In particular my research has focused on the gauge freedom of general relativity and on the development of formulations suitable for numerical approximation.

Rodrigo Panosso Macedo
Postdoctoral Research Assistant

I work in the intersection between mathematical relativity, numerical relativity and astrophysics. In the good days, I provide a link between the three fields. In the bad days, I don’t belong anywhere.
