A model for determining the dimensionless spin parameter and mass of the black hole remnant of black hole-neutron star mergers with arbitrary initial black hole spin angular momentum, binary mass ratio, and neutron star mass and cold equation of state is formulated. Tests against numerical-relativity results are carried out, showing that both the dimensionless spin parameter and the final mass are accurately reproduced. For the first time, the behavior of both quantities and of the l=2, m=2, n…

Black-Hole Remnants from Black-Hole-Neutron-Star Mergers.

It is predicted that black-hole-neutron-star mergers produce a population of remnant black holes with masses distributed around 7  M_{⊙} and 9‬‬M{�’}.

Numerical simulations of neutron star-black hole binaries in the near-equal-mass regime

Simulations of neutron star-black hole (NSBH) binaries generally consider black holes with masses in the range $(5-10)M_\odot$, where we expect to find most stellar mass black holes. The existence of

Dynamical ejecta from precessing neutron star-black hole mergers with a hot, nuclear-theory based equation of state

Neutron star-black hole binaries are among the strongest sources of gravitational waves detectable by current observatories. They can also power bright electromagnetic signals (gamma-ray bursts,

Black hole-neutron star mergers using a survey of finite-temperature equations of state

Each of the potential signals from a black hole–neutron star merger should contain an imprint of the neutron star equation of state: gravitational waves via its effect on tidal disruption, the

The landscape of disc outflows from black hole–neutron star mergers

We investigate mass ejection from accretion disks formed in mergers of black holes (BHs) and neutron stars (NSs). The third observing run of the LIGO/Virgo interferometers provided BH-NS candidate

Numerical Relativity and Astrophysics

Throughout the Universe many powerful events are driven by strong gravitational effects that require general relativity to fully describe them. These include compact binary mergers, black hole
