  • In a recent paper [L. Boyle, M. Kesden, and S. Nissanke, Phys. Rev. Lett. 100, 151101 (2008)], we introduced a spin expansion that provides a simple yet powerful way to understand aspects of binary black hole merger. This approach relies on the symmetry properties of initial and final quantities like the black hole mass m, kick velocity k, and spin vector s, rather than a detailed understanding of the merger dynamics. In this paper, we expand on this proposal, examine how well its predictions… CONTINUE READING
