Abstract
The gauge polyvalence of a new numerical code is tested, both in harmonic-coordinate simulations (gauge-waves testbed) and in singularity-avoiding coordinates (simple Black-Hole simulations, either with or without shift). The code is built upon an adjusted first-order flux-conservative version of the Z4 formalism and a recently proposed family of robust finite-difference high-resolution algorithms. An outstanding result is the long-term evolution (up to 1000M) of a Black-Hole in normal coordinates (zero shift) without excision.
