Virtual Talk: Simulating fundamental fields in strong gravity environments: opportunities and challenges

Katy Clough

Whilst stationary, asymptotically flat black holes have no hair in GR, non trivial configurations of fundamental fields can form around black holes in dynamical situations, and have a sufficiently long lifetime to be of astrophysical interest in a number of physically motivated scenarios. I will discuss how numerical studies can play a role in characterising the robustness of mechanisms that generate and support hair, and quantifying their potential impacts on gravitational observables.
