Frans Pretorius


Frans Pretorius is a Professor of Physics at Princeton University. His primary field of research is general relativity, specializing in numerical solution of the Einstein equations. His work has included studies of gravitational collapse, black hole mergers, cosmic singularities, higher dimensional gravity, models of black hole evaporation, and using gravitational wave observations to test the dynamical, strong-field regime of general relativity. Pretorius also designs algorithms to efficiently solve the Einstein equations on large computer clusters, and software to analyze and visualize the simulation results.
