We perform magnetohydrodynamic simulations in full general relativity (GRMHD) of quasi-circular, equal-mass, binary neutron stars that undergo merger. The initial stars are irrotational, n = 1Expand
Relativistic simulations of black hole-neutron star coalescence: the jet emerges
We perform magnetohydrodynamic simulations in full general relativity (GRMHD) of a binary black hole-neutron star on a quasicircular orbit that undergoes merger. The binary mass ratio is 3:1, theExpand
Relativistic Simulations of Eccentric Binary Neutron Star Mergers: One-arm Spiral Instability and Effects of Neutron Star Spin
We perform general-relativistic hydrodynamical simulations of dynamical capture binary neutron star mergers, emphasizing the role played by the neutron star spin. Dynamical capture mergers may takeExpand
Merger of white dwarf-neutron star binaries: Prelude to hydrodynamic simulations in general relativity
White dwarf-neutron star binaries generate detectable gravitational radiation. We construct Newtonian equilibrium models of corotational white dwarf-neutron star (WDNS) binaries in circular orbit andExpand
General relativistic simulations of compact binary mergers as engines for short gamma-ray bursts
Black hole - neutron star (BHNS) and neutron star - neutron star (NSNS) binaries are among the favored candidates for the progenitors of the black hole - disk systems that may be the engines poweringExpand
The NINJA-2 catalog of hybrid post-Newtonian/numerical-relativity waveforms for non-precessing black-hole binaries
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
Implications from GW170817 and I-Love-Q relations for relativistic hybrid stars
ExtreMe Matter Institute EMMI at the GSI Helmholtzzentrum fur Schwerionenphysik Darmstadt, Germany; Russian Science Foundation [7-12-01427]; COST Action [MP1304, GWverse CA16104]; DeutscheExpand
Accretion disks around binary black holes of unequal mass: General relativistic magnetohydrodynamic simulations near decoupling
We report on simulations in general relativity of magnetized disks accreting onto black hole binaries. We vary the binary mass ratio from 1:1 to 1:10 and evolve the systems when they orbit near theExpand
Importance of cooling in triggering the collapse of hypermassive neutron stars
The inspiral and merger of a binary neutron star (NSNS) can lead to the formation of a hypermassive neutron star (HMNS). As the HMNS loses thermal pressure due to neutrino cooling and/or centrifugalExpand
A new scheme for matching general relativistic ideal magnetohydrodynamics to its force-free limit
We present a new computational method for smoothly matching general relativistic ideal magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) to its force-free limit. The method is based on a flux-conservative formalism for MHDExpand
