Yosef Zlochower, associate professor in the School of Mathematical Sciences, demonstrates code during one of the tutorial sessions at the 2019 North American Einstein Toolkit Workshop June 17. The Einstein Toolkit is a community-driven software platform of core computational tools to advance and support research in relativistic astrophysics and gravitational physics. The toolkit has a community of several hundred scientists working together to develop these tools, a set of codes to solve Einstein’s equations for binary black hole collisions, neutron star collisions and other astrophysical systems.
