## Main Question or Discussion Point

Can anyone recommend a good textbook or article for numerically solving general relativity problems? Say for a planet orbiting a pair of binary stars, or even for the sun and Jupiter in our solar system?

Found a much better link, via arxiv, to the same notes:

https://arxiv.org/abs/gr-qc/0703035

I should point out that the author is considered a top expert in numerical relativity.

with many references from there.

The following, by the same author is another good starting point:
