Smart geodesic tracing in GRworkbench. We have developed a new tool for numerical work in General Relativity: GRworkbench. We discuss how GRworkbench’s implementation of a numerically-amenable analogue to Differential Geometry facilitates the development of robust and chart-independent numerical algorithms. We consider, as an example, geodesic tracing on two charts covering the exterior Schwarzschild space-time.
