  • Gravitational waveforms and fluxes from extreme mass-ratio inspirals can be computed using time-domain methods with accuracy that is fast approaching that of frequency-domain methods. We study in detail the computational efficiency of these methods for equatorial orbits of fast spinning Kerr black holes, and find the number of modes needed in either method--as functions of the orbital parameters--in order to achieve a desired accuracy level. We then estimate the total computation time and argue… CONTINUE READING
