Models of turbulent flows require the resolution of a vast range of scales, from large eddies to small-scale features directly associated with dissipation. As the required resolution is not within reach of large scale numerical simulations, standard strategies involve a smoothing of the fluid dynamics, either through time averaging or spatial filtering. These strategies raise formal issues in general relativity, where the split between space and time is observer dependent. To make progress, we…

The physics of non-ideal general relativistic magnetohydrodynamics
We consider a framework for non-ideal magnetohydrodynamics in general relativity, paying particular attention to the physics involved. The discussion highlights the connection between the
Thermal aspects of neutron star mergers
In order to extract maximal information from neutron-star merger signals, both gravitational and electromagnetic, we need to ensure that our theoretical models/numerical simulations faithfully


Energy Cascade in Large-Eddy Simulations of Turbulent Fluid Flows
Publisher Summary Numerical simulation of all the scales of a turbulent flow, even at modest Reynolds numbers, is generally not practical; however, most information of interest can be obtained by
Large Eddy Simulations in Astrophysics
In this review, the methodology of large eddy simulations (LES) is introduced and applications in astrophysics are discussed. As theoretical framework, the scale decomposition of the dynamical
Extension of the subgrid-scale gradient model for compressible magnetohydrodynamics turbulent instabilities
Performing accurate large eddy simulations in compressible, turbulent magnetohydrodynamics is more challenging than in non-magnetized fluids due to the complex interplay between kinetic, magnetic and
Unified Extended Irreversible Thermodynamics and the Stability of Relativistic Theories for Dissipation
In a relativistic context, the main purpose of Extended Irreversible Thermodynamics (EIT) is to generalize the principles of non-equilibrium thermodynamics to the domain of fluid dynamics. In
General-Relativistic Large-Eddy Simulations of Binary Neutron Star Mergers
The flow inside remnants of binary neutron star (NS) mergers is expected to be turbulent, because of magnetohydrodynamics instability activated at scales too small to be resolved in simulations. To
Inhomogeneity effects in Cosmology
This article looks at how inhomogeneous spacetime models may be significant for cosmology. First it looks at how the averaging process may affect large scale dynamics, with backreaction effects
Fermi-normal, optical, and wave-synchronous coordinates for spacetime with a plane gravitational wave
Fermi-normal (FN) coordinates provide a standardized way to describe the effects of gravitation from the point of view of an inertial observer. These coordinates have always been introduced via
Fermi Normal Coordinates and Some Basic Concepts in Differential Geometry
Fermi coordinates, where the metric is rectangular and has vanishing first derivatives at each point of a curve, are constructed in a particular way about a geodesic. This determines an expansion of

This paper, the sequel to Stewart (1977), discusses the relation between transient relativistic thermodynamics and kinetic theory in the formulation of Israel (1972, 1976) which differs
Transient relativistic thermodynamics and kinetic theory
Abstract The paper develops, from both the phenomenological and kinetic points of view, a generalized formulation of irreversible thermodynamics applicable to the description of thermal phenomena in
