# Merger estimates for Kerr-Sen black holes

@article{Haryanto2020MergerEF, title={Merger estimates for Kerr-Sen black holes}, author={M. S. Haryanto}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2020}, volume={101}, pages={64036} }

The advent of gravitational wave observation starts a new era of precision tests of gravitational theory. Estimations of black holes mergers should come from any well established gravitational theories, provided that the theory has not been ruled out by observations. In this paper we consider the low energy limit of heterotic string theory where the associated rotating and charged black holes are described by the Kerr-Sen solution. We investigate the approximate final spins and quasinormal… Expand
