Abstract

Brady, Creighton and Thorne (BCT) have proposed a choice of the lapse and shift for numerical evolutions in general relativity that extremizes a measure of the rate of change of the 3-metric (BCT gauge). We investigate the existence and uniqueness of this gauge (with Dirichlet boundary conditions), and comment on its use in numerical time evolutions.
