We prove the existence of a family of initial data for the Einstein vacuum equation which can be interpreted as the data for two Kerr-like black holes in an arbitrary location and with spins pointing in arbitrary directions. We also provide a method to compute them. If the mass parameter of one of the black holes is zero, then this family reduces exactly to(More)
I describe the construction of initial data for the Einstein vacuum equations that can represent a collision of two black holes. I stress in the main physical ideas. The physical system we want to describe is a binary system of two black holes. It is expected that lot of such systems exist in the universe. Moreover, these systems are expected to have the(More)
