We study gravitational waves emitted in the late inspiral stage of binary neutron stars by analyzing the wave form obtained in numerical-relativity simulations. For deriving the physical gravitational wave forms from the numerical results, the resolution extrapolation plays an essential role for our simulations. The extrapolated gravitational-wave phases are compared with those calculated in the post-Newtonian (PN) and effective-one-body (EOB) formalisms including corrections of tidal effects… CONTINUE READING
