Relativistic magnetohydrodynamics in dynamical spacetimes: A new AMR implementation
The radial coordinate r can be the Kerr-Schild radius, the shifted KerrSchild radius considered below, the isotropic radial coordinate in the puncture initial data, or the radial coordinate in the trumpet solution of a Schwarzschild black hole.
Relativistic magnetohydrodynamics in dynamical spacetimes: A new AMR implementation
During the puncture evolution of a Schwarzschild black hole, the radial coordinate r = px2 + y 2 + z 2 in the numerical simulation changes from the isotropic radial coordinate to the radial coordinate of the trumpet solution.
Relativistic magnetohydrodynamics in dynamical spacetimes: A new AMR implementation
This coordinate system thus mimics the trumpet solution of a Schwarzschild black hole.
