The conformal formulation of the Einstein constraint equations is first reviewed, and we then consider the design, analysis, and implementation of adaptive multilevel finite element-type numerical methods for the resulting coupled nonlinear elliptic system. We derive weak formulations of the coupled constraints, and review some new developments in the… (More)
