Black-hole collisions from Brill-Lindquist initial data: Predictions of perturbation theory.

  • Abrahams, Price

The Misner initial value solution for two momentarily stationary black holes has been the focus of much numerical study. We report here analytic results for an astrophysically similar initial solution, that of Brill and Lindquist (BL). Results are given from perturbation theory for initially close holes and are compared with available numerical results. A… (More)
