Measuring the spins of heavy binary black holes
An accurate and precise measurement of the spins of individual merging black holes is required to understand their origin. While previous studies have indicated that most of the spin informationExpand

Catalog of 174 binary black hole simulations for gravitational wave astronomy.
TLDR
A publicly available catalog of 174 numerical binary black hole simulations following up to 35 orbits establishes remarkably good agreement with post-Newtonian precession of orbital and spin directions for two new precessing simulations. Expand
Measuring the spin of black holes in binary systems using gravitational waves.
TLDR
This study suggests that direct measurement of black hole spin by means of GWs can be as precise as what can be obtained from x-ray binaries. Expand
Distinguishing black-hole spin-orbit resonances by their gravitational wave signatures. II. Full parameter estimation
Gravitational waves from coalescing binary black holes encode the evolution of their spins prior to merger. In the post-Newtonian regime and on the precession time scale, this evolution has one ofExpand
Distinguishing black-hole spin-orbit resonances by their gravitational-wave signatures
If binary black holes form following the successive core collapses of sufficiently massive binary stars, precessional dynamics may align their spins, S1 and S2, and the orbital angular momentum LExpand
GW190521: A Binary Black Hole Merger with a Total Mass of 150  M_{⊙}.
TLDR
It is inferred that the primary black hole mass lies within the gap produced by (pulsational) pair-instability supernova processes, with only a 0.32% probability of being below 65  M⊙, which can be considered an intermediate mass black hole (IMBH). Expand
The SXS collaboration catalog of binary black hole simulations
Accurate models of gravitational waves from merging black holes are necessary for detectors to observe as many events as possible while extracting the maximum science. Near the time of merger, theExpand
Spin-orbit resonance and the evolution of compact binary systems
Starting with a post-Newtonian description of compact binary systems, we derive a set of equations that describes the evolution of the orbital angular momentum and both spin vectors during inspiral.Expand

Spin-induced orbital precession and its modulation of the gravitational waveforms from merging binaries.
TLDR
This paper analyzes the resulting modulation of the inspiral gravitational waveform, using post2-Newtonian equations to describe the precession of the orbital plane, but only the leading-order ( newtonian, quadrupole-moment approximation) equations to describes the orbit, the radiation reaction, the inspirals, and the wave generation.
