Inspiral-merger-ringdown waveforms for black-hole binaries with nonprecessing spins.

We present the first analytical inspiral-merger-ringdown gravitational waveforms from binary black holes (BBHs) with nonprecessing spins, that is based on a description of the late-inspiral, merger… Expand

- Physics
- 20 December 2007

We provide a compact analytic formula to compute the spin of the black hole produced by the coalescence of two black holes following a quasicircular inspiral. Without additional fits than those… Expand

Gravitational-wave detectability of equal-mass black-hole binaries with aligned spins

- C. Reisswig, S. Husa, L. Rezzolla, Ernst Nils Dorband, D. Pollney, J. Seiler
- Physics
- 2 July 2009

Binary black-hole systems with spins aligned or anti-aligned to the orbital angular momentum, and which therefore do not exhibit precession effects, provide the natural ground to start detailed… Expand

The final spin from the coalescence of aligned-spin black hole binaries

- L. Rezzolla, P. Diener, +4 authors J. Seiler
- Physics
- 17 October 2007

Determining the final spin of a black hole (BH) binary is a question of key importance in astrophysics. Modeling this quantity in general is made difficult by the fact that it depends on the… Expand
