School on "Structure and dynamics of compact objects"
The Albert Einstein Institute
has hosted a summer school on the physics of compact objects, with
emphasis on the modelling of gravitational wave sources from September
The school has been organized by Jörg Frauendiener, Stratos Boutloukos
(both University of
Tübingen) and Sascha Husa (AEI),
as a common activity of the German transregional research
"Gravitational Wave Astronomy", the European Network of Theoretical
Astroparticle Physics (ENTAPP) within ILIAS
and the Albert Einstein Institute.
Local organisation was provided by numerous members of the AEI numerical relativity group.
The scientific programme
was addressed to post-graduate scientists around
the world and covered selected issues around the modeling of
gravitational wave sources;
consisting of lectures on selected topics by invited
speakers, with ample time for discussions. A computer-lab devoted to
numerical relativity and a poster session have given opportunities for
Material from Talks and Computer Lab Exercises
Links to the slides from the talks are provided from the
list of abstracts
