Computational relativity: numerical and algebraic approaches. Report of workshop A4 (10th International Conference on General Relativity and Gravitation, Padua, July 3  8, 1983).
Abstract
Attention is given to codes that can calculate the coupled general relativity/hydrodynamics equations in two spatial dimensions plus time. These codes are compared, and areas needing improvement are reviewed critically. The potential uses of numerical relativity are examined, and it is noted that in some cases the gravitational field can be chosen to be an analytically known solution while the hydrodynamics can be done in the background field. Particular consideration is given to Regge calculus and algebraic computing.
