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?

Thanks but my browser (FireFox) refuses to go to that site. Says it is "unsecured" or something. Is there any way you could attach that pdf for me? Thanks!

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.

I should add that full numeric relativity is needed only for strong gravity regimes like inspiral of black holes and/or neutron stars. For nearly Newtonian situations, you use PPN methods; these are fully adequate for the situations you mention. A description of these methods is found in chapter 3 of:

https://arxiv.org/abs/1403.7377

with many references from there.

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