We consider the formation of extreme mass-ratio inspirals (EMRIs) sourced from a stellar cusp centred on a primary supermassive black hole (SMBH) and perturbed by an inspiraling less massive secondary SMBH. The problem is approached numerically, assuming the stars are non-interacting over these short time-scales and performing an ensemble of restricted three-body integrations. From these simulations, we see that not only can EMRIs be produced during this process, but the dynamics are also quite… Expand
