Gungwon Kang (KISTI & KAIST):
“Brief summaries on general relativity (I, II)”
Basic concepts of general relativity are briefly summarized. They include simultaneity of events, equivalence principle, spacetime curvature, Einstein equations, black hole geometry, TOV solutions, linearized gravity, gravitational waves, etc.. The aim of these two lectures is to remind or provide students with basic concepts of GR which might be helpful for understanding the rest of lectures at the school.
July 27 (Mon)
Alex Nielsen (Albert Einstein Institute Hannover):
“Gravitational wave data analysis for CBC with spins (I, II, III)”
Lecture 1: What are gravitational waves?
Where we learn about what gravitational waves are, how they are produced and the ongoing efforts to detect them. The main topics are the linearized wave equation in gravity, the Einstein quadrupole formula, worldwide detectors and space missions.
Lecture 2: What are the sources of gravitational waves?
Where we ask what we might detect with gravitational waves. The focus is on binary systems of black holes and neutron stars and their properties, especially their rotational spin.
Lecture 3: How do we detect gravitational wave signals?
Where we learn about the data analysis tools that are used to identify gravitational wave signals? Here the main topics are matched filtering, template banks, detection statistics, false alarm rates and the software pipelines used for the analyses.
David Hilditch (University of Jena):
“Formalisms of numerical relativity (I, II)”
Title: Freeevolution formulations of General Relativity
In my lectures I will discuss the consequence of gauge freedom in building freeevolution formulations of general relativity for numerics. I will start by describing the 3+1 decomposition and the freeevolution approach. The principle requirement of wellposedness of PDE problems will be stressed, and the consequence of illposedness on numerics demonstrated. I will overview the formulations in use in 3d numerical relativity for the computation of gravitational waves. Roughly speaking, these fall into two categories, the generalized harmonic and moving puncture approaches. I will explain the strengths and weaknesses of each. I will end with a collection of open problems and, time permitting, discussion of recent developments in the subject.
Jessica McIver (University of Massachusetts Amherst):
“Detector Characterization (I, II, III)”
I  An Introduction to Advanced Interferometers
The basics of advanced terrestrial gravitational wave interferometer instrumentation. The bulk of this lecture will cover a broad overview of the instrumental subsystems that comprise the Advanced LIGO detectors. We will also briefly discuss the expected interferometer configuration for the first observing run, expected to start in September, and how this configuration will change over time as the instruments are commissioned to design sensitivity. This material will lay the foundation for discussion of past, present, and potential future instrumental noise sources.
II  Noise transients and their impact on astrophysical GW searches
In introduction to noise transients, or glitches. This lecture will cover the effect of glitches on past searches for transient gravitational waves from astrophysical sources and motivate the critical need for glitch mitigation. We will also discuss a selection of basic tools and techniques used to characterize glitches and diagnose transient noise sources.
III  Current data quality features in Advanced LIGO
An overview of recent noise artifacts identified in the Advanced LIGO instruments that may be harmful to the transient astrophysical searches. For each highlighted artifact we will discuss its anticipated or measured effect on the GW searches, the techniques used to identify the noise source, if known, and the current mitigation strategy.

“Nuclear astrophysics (I, II, III)”
Nuclear astrophysics is the bridge between nuclear/microscopic scales (nuclei, nucleons, neutrinos) and astrophysical scales (stars, supernovae, and mergers). Physics arising from phenomena on these scales have a very important role in high energydensity astrophysical environments, especially environments where gravitational wave sources are expected. Whether it be the interaction between nucleons (the strong force) the interaction of nucleons and nuclei with leptons (weak force), or charged particle interactions (electric force), all these need to be modeled in numerical simulations to make quantitative (and in some cases qualitative) predictions of observables and outcomes of high energy astrophysical events like the end stage of massive star evolution, corecollapse supernova, gammaray bursts, and compact object mergers. This set of lectures will focus on several important aspects of microphysics for such numerical simulations ranging from the nuclear equation of state to neutrino transport and neutrino interactions and nucleosynthesis. Building on these lectures, I will end with a summary of the current status of corecollapse supernova and compact object merger simulations, with a particular focus on the nuclear astrophysics influences.

K. G. Arun (Chennai Mathematical Institute):
“PostNewtonian modeling of gravitational waveforms from compact binaries (I, II, III)”
In this set of lectures I will give an overview of the postNewtonian (PN) theory with the focus on its applications to the modeling of gravitational waveforms from compact binaries. After a quick recap of the linearized theory and quadrupole formula, I will discuss the derivation of the leading order (Newtonian) phasing formula using energy balance argument in time domain. The derivation of the frequency domain gravitational waveform using stationary phase approximation will be discussed. I will then discuss the ingredients involved in constructing higher order phasing formula which is crucial for match filtering the GW data from the interferometric detectors. Various PN approximants in the time and frequency domain will be overviewed. The importance of incorporating the higher modes of gravitational waveform (which includes higher harmonics) will be also discussed. I will end by giving a summary of various physical effects which need to be incorporated in the gravitational waveforms and the state of art of the field.
1. Basic features of linearized gravity, quadrupole formula
2. Energy balance equation and derivation of Newtonian phasing formula
3. Frequency domain gravitational waveforms using Stationary Phase Approximation
4. Ingredients for the construction of higher order phasing formula.
5. Survey of various Taylor Approximants in time and frequency domains.
6. Amplitude corrections and higher harmonics.
7. Various physical effects in the gravitational waveforms and state of art.
Yuichiro Sekiguchi (Toho University):
“Recent developments in binary neutron star merger in numerical relativity”
Talk I: Technical aspects
Talk II: Mass ejection in the merger and rprocess nucleosynthesis
The merger of binary neutron stars is quite interesting in terms of various aspects, such as, one of the most promising sources of gravitational waves, a promising candidate for the central engine of shorthard gammaray bursts, and a site of heavy element nucleosynthesis. For a quantitative study of these topics, we have to perform merger simulations taking into account both general relativistic gravity and detailed microphysical processes. In this talk, I will first review recent developments in implementing neutrinoradiation hydrodynamics together with the microphysics in numerical relativity. Then, I will introduce and review the latest results about the binary neutron star mergers as the origin of heavy elements.

Roman Gold (University of Maryland):
“Eccentric binary black hole or neutron star simulations (I, II, III)”
1) Introduction to the 2body problem in GR
The lecture will begin by briefly reviewing the 2body problem in Newtonian gravity. We will move on to General Relativity and appreciate similarities to the Newtonian regime, but also qualitatively new features. A focus on eccentric motion will reveal circularization of the orbit, precession, and zoomwhirl orbits.
Then I will discuss tidal interactions and their influence on both the binary orbital motion and the structure of the individual stars.
2) Numerical relativity simulations of eccentric binaries: BHBH and NSNS
A review of numerical relativity studies on eccentric binaries is given. This will show the rich phenomenology in possible orbital dynamics and final outcomes. In the black hole binary case we will focus on zoomwhirl orbits both at low momentum (elliptical) motion and high momentum (hyperbolic) motion.
In the neutron star and blackhole neutron star binary case I will review the results obtained so far including tidal excitation of fmodes, tidal disruption and the implications for the remnant system.
3) Potential Observational signatures
In the final lecture the focus will be on observational predictions in the form gravitational wave emission and electromagnetic radiation.
I will review gravitational wave forms highlighting differences between (repeated bursts) eccentric and (chirping) quasicircular inspiral. An outline of how the waveform and energy radiated depends on the initial configuration of the binary is given. Next, gravitational recoils / kicks including their astrophysical implications are discussed.
For the cases involving neutron stars I discuss possible implications for gamma ray bursts. In addition the possible consequences of strong tidal deformations for the fate of neutron star crusts are highlighted. I will also review afterglow EM counterparts such as radiation from heavier nuclei that are produced via the rprocess from neutron rich ejecta.
Zach Etienne (West Virginia University):
“General relativistic magnetohydrodynamics (I, II, III)”
Lecture 1): "General Relativistic Magnetohydrodynamics (GRMHD): Introduction to the equations of GRMHD and their astrophysical importance."
Lecture 2): "How the GRMHD equations are solved numerically"
Lecture 3): "Key Results from largescale GRMHD simulations"
The equations of general relativistic magnetohydrodynamics (GRMHD) are believed to be a good description of the driving dynamics behind highlyenergetic and luminous phenomena of central importance to astronomy and astrophysics. In a series of three lectures, the GRMHD equations are first introduced with particular focus on their astrophysical significance. The second lecture will review the current stateoftheart algorithms used to solve these equations in the context of largescale astrophysical GRMHD simulations, and the final lecture will review some key findings from such simulations.
July 31 (Fri)
Hongbao Zhang (Vrije Universiteit Brussel):
“Numerical holography (I, II)”
After a brief introduction to AdS/CFT for general relativity community, I will present the state of the art numerics used in applied AdS/CFT by some concrete examples, which includes pseudospectral method along the spacial direction and RungeKutta method in the time direction.
