FAU Numerical Relativity Data Repository

This repository contains data from simulations performed by the Numerical Relativity group at FAU. The purpose of the repository is to collect and describe the results of our simulations. We make these data available to any research group without any restrictions. We only ask that users cite the papers listed below, and that they consider collaborating with us. More data and descriptions will be added over time. SVN access may be added if there is sufficient demand for it. For now, each file can be downloaded directly using any web browser. The data format for the waveforms here is the same as for the NRAR collaboration. This format is explained in http://arxiv.org/abs/0709.0093. Each data file is compressed with gzip, and needs to be decompressed with gunzip, before it can be used (e.g. with tgraph). Each data file folder also contains a readme file. For inquiries and requests please write to wolf@fau.edu.

Software to access data

tgraph.py - Plot 1D and 2D ASCII output from computer codes such as BAM, SGRID or the Einstein Toolkit

Simulation data

Gravitational waveforms and black hole trajectories for simulations of ADMTT based post-Newtonian initial data

These simulations were performed by George Reifenberger as part of his Ph.D. thesis (http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/2013PhDT.......221R).

Data files

Gravitational waveforms and black hole trajectories for simulations starting from standard puncture initial data


Data files

Gravitational waveforms and trajectories for simulations of neutron star binaries with spin

These data were produced for our paper (http://arxiv.org/abs/1311.4443).
