CoRe Collaboration

We are a collaborative research effort between scientists at the University of Jena (Germany), Nikhef (Amsterdam), ABC University Sao Paulo (Brazil), Princeton University (US), Florida Altantic University (US), INFN (Italy), and other institutions. We perform 3+1 numerical relativity simulations of compact binaries spacetimes supporting the emerging fields of gravitational wave and multi-messenger astronomy.

Our research is supported by the German Research Foundation (DFG); the European Research Council (ERC); the Sao Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP); the Max Planck Society; the Italian Nuclear Physics Institute (INFN); the National Science Foundation (NSF); and the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).
