The GR Kerr Wavefront program simulates the path of light emitted in all directions in the equatorial plane near a rotating black hole using the Kerr metric. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the gr_kerr_wavefront.jar file will run the program if Java is installed. The default setting is a wavefront with an initial r value of 3.0 near a black hole with an angular momentum, J/M = .75. GR Kerr Wavefront program is part of a suite of Open Source Physics programs that model aspects of General Relativity. Other programs provide additional visualizations. They can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, OSP, or General Relativity.
