The numerical solution of relativistic hydrodynamics equations in conservative form requires root-finding algorithms that invert the conservative-to-primitive variables map. These algorithms employ the equation of state of the fluid and can be computationally demanding for applications involving sophisticated microphysics models, such as those required to calculate accurate gravitational wave signals in numerical relativity simulations of binary neutron stars. This work explores the use of… 


Primitive Variable Solvers for Conservative General Relativistic Magnetohydrodynamics
Conservative numerical schemes for general relativistic magnetohydrodynamics (GRMHD) require a method for transforming between "conserved" variables such as momentum and energy density and
Recovery schemes for primitive variables in general-relativistic magnetohydrodynamics
General-relativistic magnetohydrodynamic (GRMHD) simulations are an important tool to study a variety of astrophysical systems such as neutron star mergers, core-collapse supernovae, and accretion
Numerical Hydrodynamics in Special Relativity
This review is concerned with a discussion of numerical methods for the solution of the equations of special relativistic hydrodynamics (SRHD). Particular emphasis is put on a comprehensive review of

A comprehensive summary of astrophysical simulations in strong gravitational fields is presented, detailed in three basic sections, namely gravitational collapse, black-hole accretion, and neutron-star evolutions; despite the boundaries, these sections may (and in fact do) overlap throughout the discussion.
The analytical solution of the Riemann problem in relativistic hydrodynamics
We consider the decay of an initial discontinuity in a polytropic gas in a Minkowski space–time (the special relativistic Riemann problem). In order to get a general analytical solution for this
A new open-source code for spherically symmetric stellar collapse to neutron stars and black holes
We present the new open-source spherically symmetric general-relativistic (GR) hydrodynamics code GR1D. It is based on the Eulerian formulation of GR hydrodynamics (GRHD) put forth by
Dynamical mass ejection from binary neutron star mergers: Radiation-hydrodynamics study in general relativity
We perform radiation-hydrodynamics simulations of binary neutron star mergers in numerical relativity on the Japanese "K" supercomputer, taking into account neutrino cooling and heating by an updated
The Accuracy, Consistency, and Speed of an Electron-Positron Equation of State Based on Table Interpolation of the Helmholtz Free Energy
The choice of a biquintic Hermite polynomial as the interpolating function results in accurately reproducing the underlying Helmholtz free energy data in the table, and yields derivatives of the pressure, specific entropy, and specific internal energy which are smooth and continuous.
