Two-parameter nonlinear spacetime perturbations: Gauge transformations and gauge invariance
An implicit fundamental assumption in relativistic perturbation theory is that there exists a parametric family of spacetimes that can be Taylor expanded around a background. The choice of the latterExpand

Blocking low-eccentricity EMRIs: a statistical direct-summation N-body study of the Schwarzschild barrier
ABSTRACT The capture of a compact object in a galactic nucleus by a massive black hole (MBH),an extreme-mass ratio inspiral (EMRI), is the best way to map space and time aroundit. Recent work onExpand
