Description

In this talk, I will introduce GRChombo: a numerical relativity code which is capable of performing adaptive mesh refinement (AMR) in a fully automated manner. Our code implements the tried-and-tested BSSN/CCZ4 formalisms on top of a modern C++ framework provided by the Chombo AMR library. This allows many problems to be set up much more straightforwardly, whilst still achieving good parallel performance. I will also discuss additional tools which we have recently developed as part of the package and some of the science that we are currently looking at using GRChombo.
