Numerical Relativity and a New Frontier: Connecting the Seen with the Unseen

Luis Lehner
Department of Physics, LSU


Recent developments in the field of Numerical Relativity have not only provided key insights of binary black hole systems but also began influencing its future role. Undoubtedly one of the most important future drivers in the near future of the field will be its role as another element within the study of spectacular astrophysical phenomena involving strongly gravitation scenarios. Connecting (yet to be observed) gravitational waves with observations within the electromagnetic spectra will be one ultimate goal of this enterprise. This talk will summarise some interesting results on the binary black hole problem, connect with the data analysis efforts and illustrate the study of magnetized binary neutron star systems as a stepping stone towards more ambitious goals.
