**PDEs on Curved Space Time**

Friday, April 15, 2016, 5:00pm

Ungar Building Room 402

**Abstract: **

We will review basic aspects on how to numerically solve a few PDEs on flat space-times, starting with the scalar wave equation in 1+1 and 2+1. Then we will use the Schwarzschild metric to see the effect of a curved space on the equation, and lastly we will look at an example of how to find the metric numerically that solves a certain PDE.
