Modeling Kicks from the Merger of Generic Black Hole Binaries
ABSTRACT Recent numerical relativistic results demonstrate that the merger of comparable-mass spinning black holes has a maximum "recoil kick" of up to N 4000 km s-l. However the scaling of theseExpand
Gravitational-wave extraction from an inspiraling configuration of merging black holes.
The approach follows the "puncture" treatment of black holes, but utilizing a new gauge condition which allows the black holes to move successfully through the computational domain, and applies these techniques to an inspiraling binary, modeling the radiation generated during the final plunge and ringdown.

Binary black hole merger dynamics and waveforms
We study dynamics and radiation generation in the last few orbits and merger of a binary black hole system, applying recently developed techniques for simulations of moving black holes. Our analysisExpand
Getting a Kick Out of Numerical Relativity
Recent developments in numerical relativity have made it possible to reliably follow the coalescence of two black holes from near the innermost stable circular orbit to final ringdown. This opens upExpand
Binary black hole late inspiral: Simulations for gravitational wave observations
Coalescing binary black hole mergers are expected to be the strongest gravitational wave sources for ground-based interferometers, such as the LIGO, VIRGO, and GEO600, as well as the space-basedExpand
Torsion–Vibration–Rotation Interactions in Methanol. I. Millimeter Wave Spectrum
In a study of internal rotation in methanol, the millimeter wave spectra of CH3OH, CD3OH, and CH3OD have been investigated between 90 and 200 Gc/sec. In the analysis of the spectra,Expand
Black-hole binaries, gravitational waves, and numerical relativity
Understanding the predictions of general relativity for the dynamical interactions of two black holes has been a long-standing unsolved problem in theoretical physics. Black-hole mergers areExpand

General Relativistic Simulations of Magnetized Plasmas around Merging Supermassive Black Holes
Coalescing supermassive black hole binaries are produced by the mergers of galaxies and are the most powerful sources of gravitational waves accessible to space-based gravitational observatories.Expand
