Numerical Relativity in the Age of Gravitational Wave Observations

The advent of gravitational wave astronomy has created opportunities to probe strong-field gravity as black holes merge.   Numerical relativity provides the means to confront the measurements with theoretical prediction from general relativity, allowing us to interpret the sources of gravitational waves and to test whether general relativity is the theory governing these events.   In this talk, I’ll discuss the role numerical relativity plays in the observed black hole binaries by LIGO and Virgo and will play as the gravitational wave detectors mature.
