The Center for Computational Relativity and Gravitation (CCRG) is a COS Research Center and a Research Center of Excellence at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) dedicated to research at the frontiers of numerical relativity and relativistic astrophysics, gravitational-wave physics, its connection to experiments and observations, and high-performance computation and scientific visualization. 

The CCRG includes faculty, postdoctoral researchers, and students across several several departments and colleges at RIT, as well as affiliate researchers, external collaborators, and visiting scientists. The CCRG has many active externally funded projects and operates state-of-the-art laboratories in high-performance computation and visualization. Read more ...
