# Relativistic hydrodynamic evolutions with black hole excision

@article{Duez2004RelativisticHE, title={Relativistic hydrodynamic evolutions with black hole excision}, author={Matthew D Duez and Stuart L. Shapiro and Hwei-jang Yo}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2004}, volume={69}, pages={104016} }

We present a numerical code designed to study astrophysical phenomena involving dynamical spacetimes containing black holes in the presence of relativistic hydrodynamic matter. We present evolutions of the collapse of a fluid star from the onset of collapse to the settling of the resulting black hole to a final stationary state. In order to evolve stably after the black hole forms, we excise a region inside the hole before a singularity is encountered. This excision region is introduced after…
