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, mergerExpand

Matching post-Newtonian and numerical relativity waveforms: Systematic errors and a new phenomenological model for nonprecessing black hole binaries
We present a new phenomenological gravitational waveform model for the inspiral and coalescence of nonprecessing spinning black hole binaries. Our approach is based on a frequency-domain matching ofExpand

Final spin from the coalescence of two black holes
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 thoseExpand

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

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

Testing gravitational-wave searches with numerical relativity waveforms: Results from the first Numerical INJection Analysis (NINJA) project
The Numerical INJection Analysis (NINJA) project is a collaborative effort between members of the numerical relativity and gravitational-wave data analysis communities. The purpose of NINJA is toExpand

"Complete" gravitational waveforms for black-hole binaries with non-precessing spins
We present the first analytical inspiral-merger-ringdown gravitational waveforms from black-hole (BH) binaries with non-precessing spins. By matching a post-Newtonian description of the inspiral to aExpand

Constraint-preserving boundary treatment for a harmonic formulation of the Einstein equations
We present a set of well-posed constraint-preserving boundary conditions for a first-order in time, second-order in space, harmonic formulation of the Einstein equations. The boundary conditions areExpand

Numerical Simulation of Binary Black Hole Space-Time and a Novel Approach to Outer Boundary Conditions
With ground-based gravitational wave detectors at design sensitivity, and a spacebased detector in planning stages, the need for accurate gravitational wave templates for signal recognition byExpand
