## [4.01] Invited: Numerical Simulations of Black Holes

*S. A. Teukolsky (Cornell)*

Einstein's equations of general relativity are extremely
complicated and difficult to solve. Recently great progress
has been made in trying to solve these equations numerically
using supercomputers. Problems involving black holes are
particularly challenging. I will describe the results of
recent calculations of black hole collisions, and relate the
results to the current observational search for
gravitational waves. Needless to say, no knowledge of
general relativity will be assumed.

This work was supported in part by the National Science
Foundation.
