Helioseismic Modeling of Background Flows
We present a three-dimensional (3D) numerical solver of the linearized compressible Euler equations (Global Acoustic Linearized Euler), used to model acoustic oscillations throughout the solar
A spectral method based on $(0,2)$ Jacobi polynomials. Application to Poisson problems in a sphere
A new spectral method is built resorting to $(0,2)$ Jacobi polynomials. We describe the origin and the properties of these polynomials. This choice of polynomials is motivated by their orthogonality

Asymptotic behavior of acoustic waves scattered by very small obstacles
The direct numerical simulation of the acoustic wave scattering created by very small obstacles is very expensive, especially in three dimensions and even more so in time domain. The use of


A Multidomain Spectral Method for Scalar and Vectorial Poisson Equations with Noncompact Sources
We present a spectral method for solving elliptic equations which arise in general relativity, namely three-dimensional scalar Poisson equations, as well as generalized vectorial Poisson equations of
Constrained scheme for the Einstein equations based on the Dirac gauge and spherical coordinates
We propose a new formulation for 3+1 numerical relativity, based on a constrained scheme and a generalization of Dirac gauge to spherical coordinates. This is made possible thanks to the introduction
Tensor Harmonics in Canonical Form for Gravitational Radiation and Other Applications
An analysis is made of the relation between the tensor harmonics given by Regge and Wheeler in 1957 and those given by Jon Mathews in 1962. This makes it possible to use the Regge‐Wheeler harmonics,
Implementation of higher-order absorbing boundary conditions for the Einstein equations
We present an implementation of absorbing boundary conditions for the Einstein equations based on the recent work of Buchman and Sarbach. In this paper, we assume that spacetime may be linearized
Spectral Methods for Numerical Relativity
This paper focuses on a class called spectral methods in which, typically, the various functions are expanded in sets of orthogonal polynomials or functions, and presents results obtained by various groups in the field of general relativity by means of spectral methods.
Multipole expansions of gravitational radiation
This paper brings together, into a single unified notation, the multipole formalisms for gravitational radiation which various people have constructed. It also extends the results of previous
