Collapse of collisionless clusters in axisymmetry. While Cartesian coordinates are well suited for many applications, in particular simulations of binaries, spherical polar coordinates have some desirable properties for simulations of single objects, for example gravitational collapse and supernova explosions.

It’s well suited for my needs: I frequently refer this book to my friends who need to learn the ADM formalism, it is the best introduction to the subject. It has now become a central area in the fast growing field of gravitational wave physics. Recent breakthroughs make such computations possible — an advance that is crucially important for understanding galactic nuclei and gravitational waves.
