Massive Black Hole (MBH) binaries are considered to be one of the most important sources of Gravitational Waves (GW) that can be detected by GW detectors like LISA. However, there are a lot of uncertainties in the dynamics of MBH binaries in the stages leading up to the GW-emission phase. It has been recently suggested that Nuclear Star Clusters (NSCs) could provide a viable route to overcome the final parsec problem for MBH binaries at the center of galaxies. NSCs are collisional systems where…
