We study the inspiral of double black holes orbiting inside a massive rotationally supported gaseous disk with masses in the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) window of detectability. Using high–resolution SPH simulations, we follow the black hole dynamics in the early phase when gas–dynamical friction acts on the black holes individually, and continue our simulation until they form a close binary. We find that in the early sinking the black holes lose memory of their initial orbital… Expand

EFFICIENT MERGER OF BINARY SUPERMASSIVE BLACK HOLES IN NON- AXISYMMETRIC GALAXIES
Binary supermassive black holes form naturally in galaxy mergers, but their long-term evolution is uncertain. In spherical galaxies, N-body simulations show that binary evolution stalls atExpand

The role of gas in the merging of massive black holes in galactic nuclei. II. black hole merging in a nuclear gas disk
Using high-resolution SPH numerical simulations, we investigate the effects of gas on the in-spiral and merger of a massive black hole binary. This study is motivated by the very massive nuclear gasExpand
The Gravitational Wave Signal from Massive Black Hole Binaries and Its Contribution to the LISA Data Stream
Massive black hole binaries, with masses in the range 103-108 M☉, are expected to be the most powerful sources of gravitational radiation at mHz frequencies, and hence are among the primary targetsExpand
