# Orbital dynamics of binary boson star systems

@article{Palenzuela2008OrbitalDO, title={Orbital dynamics of binary boson star systems}, author={Carlos Palenzuela and Luis Lehner and Steven L. Liebling}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2008}, volume={77}, pages={044036} }

We extend our previous studies of head-on collisions of boson stars by considering orbiting binary boson stars. We concentrate on equal-mass binaries and study the dynamical behavior of boson/boson and boson/antiboson pairs. We examine the gravitational wave output of these binaries and compare with other compact binaries. Such a comparison lets us probe the apparent simplicity observed in gravitational waves produced by black hole binary systems. In our system of interest however, there is an…
