Novel(?) Numerical Methods for AdS Gravitational Collapse
David Garfinkle, Oakland Univ.

It is to be expected that new numerical methods will be needed to do simulations of gravitational collapse in 5 dimensions and with AdS boundary conditions. Nonetheless, it is helpful to see how far we can get using the sort of methods that have worked for GR in 4 dimensions. This talk will presents results for spherically symmetric gravitational collapse of a scalar field in AdS 5 in both global and Poincare coordinates.
