Received (Day Month Year) Binary black hole systems in the pre-coalescence stage are numerically constructed by demanding that the associated spacetime admits a helical Killing vector. Comparison with third order post-Newtonian calculations indicates a rather good agreement until the innermost stable circular orbit. 1. Quasi-equilibrium configurations of binary black holes 1.1. Helical Killing vector Binary black holes are considered as one of the most promising sources for the gravitational… CONTINUE READING
