One approach expresses the gravitational field at large distances as a perturbation about an analytic spherically symmetric background metric. The waves are decomposed into a multipole expansion. Each multipole component satisfies a 1-dimensional linear wave equation. The wave data is 'extracted' from the full numerical solution in the region near the outer boundary. This provides initial conditions to evolve the perturbation quantities to very large distances. The evolution is cheap because the equations are 1-dimensional, and the asymptotic waveform can be read off very accurately.
If we begin at t = to with data located at grid points that are uniformly distributed in the xl coordinates, then we end the first phase of the evolution with data located at grid points that are uniformly distributed in the xl coordinates. We can therefore perform the required transformation back to the physical coordinates via interpolation (or extrapolation) from the computational grid. To determine the location of the physical grid points within the computational grid, we evolve the xl coordinates along the t direction.
