The Effect of Mass Segregation on Gravitational Wave Sources near Massive Black Holes
Gravitational waves (GWs) from the inspiral of compact remnants (CRs) into massive black holes (MBHs) will be observable to cosmological distances. While a CR spirals in, two-body scattering by fieldExpand

Resonant Relaxation near a Massive Black Hole: The Stellar Distribution and Gravitational Wave Sources
Resonant relaxation (RR) of orbital angular momenta occurs near massive black holes (MBHs) where the potential is spherical and stellar orbits are nearly Keplerian and so do not precessExpand

STRONG MASS SEGREGATION AROUND A MASSIVE BLACK HOLE
We show that the mass-segregation solution for the steady-state distribution of stars around a massive black hole (MBH) has two branches: the well known weak-segregation solution and a strongExpand

BINARY DYNAMICS NEAR A MASSIVE BLACK HOLE
We analyze the dynamical evolution of binary stars that interact with a static background of single stars in the environment of a massive black hole (MBH). All stars are considered to be single mass,Expand

The Orbital Statistics of Stellar Inspiral and Relaxation near a Massive Black Hole: Characterizing Gravitational Wave Sources
We study the orbital parameter distribution of stars that are scattered into nearly radial orbits and then spiral into a massive black hole (MBH) due to dissipation, in particular by emission ofExpand

Massive Perturber-driven Interactions between Stars and a Massive Black Hole
We study the role of massive perturbers (MPs) in deflecting stars and binaries to almost radial (loss cone) orbits, where they pass near the central massive black hole (MBH), interact with it atExpand

Resonant relaxation near a massive black hole: the dependence on eccentricity
The orbits of stars close to a massive black hole (MBH) are nearly Keplerian ellipses. Such orbits exert long-term torques on each other, which lead to an enhanced angular momentum relaxation knownExpand

ANALYTIC STUDY OF MASS SEGREGATION AROUND A MASSIVE BLACK HOLE
We analyze the distribution of stars of arbitrary mass function ξ(m) around a massive black hole (MBH). Unless ξ is strongly dominated by light stars, the steady-state distribution functionExpand

Secular Stellar Dynamics near a Massive Black Hole
The angular momentum evolution of stars close to massive black holes (MBHs) is driven by secular torques. In contrast to two-body relaxation, where interactions between stars are incoherent, theExpand

Determination of factors required to increase uptake of influenza vaccination among hospital-based healthcare workers.
A questionnaire study was performed in all eight University Medical Centers in The Netherlands to determine the predictors of influenza vaccination compliance in hospital-based healthcare workersExpand
