Abstract
Under specific conditions, there is a formal analogy between the fundamental equations of electromagnetism and relativistic gravitation, described by the Einstein field equations of general relativity. In this paper, we report on how we have used this analogy to implement a solver of the Einstein equations adapting algorithms initially developed for electromagnetism, combined with methods of heterogeneous supercomputing, in GPU that can achieve fast computing and exhibit good performance. We also present the results of the simulations used to validate our solver.
