Description

Motivated by TeV gravity scenarios I shall describe the programme of generalising numerical relativity to higher dimensional spacetimes, with the goal of performing high energy collisions of black holes in D dimensions and extracting observable quantities. After reviewing the topic, I shall present the wave forms and energy converted into gravitational radiation for a head-on black hole collision in a higher dimensional space-time, which we obtained for the first time in 2010.
