Gravitational-wave echoes from numerical-relativity waveforms via spacetime construction near merging compact objects

We propose a new approach toward reconstructing the late-time near-horizon geometry of merging binary black holes, and toward computing gravitational-wave echoes from exotic compact objects. A binary

Generalized Hayward spacetimes: Geometry, matter, and scalar quasinormal modes

Bardeen’s 1968 idea of a regular black hole spacetime was revived by Hayward in 2006 through the construction of a new example of such a geometry. Later it was realised by Neves and Saa, that a

Snowmass2021 Cosmic Frontier White Paper: Fundamental Physics and Beyond the Standard Model

Gravitational wave detectors are formidable tools to explore strong-field gravity, especially black holes and neutron stars. These compact objects are extraordinarily efficient at producing

Resonances, black hole mimickers, and the greenhouse effect: Consequences for gravitational-wave physics

Ultracompact objects with photonspheres are known to mimic many observational features of black holes. It has been suggested that anomalous tidal heating or the presence of resonances in



Impact of a Spinning Supermassive Black Hole on the Orbit and Gravitational Waves of a Nearby Compact Binary

Recent theoretical studies suggest that stellar-mass binary black holes (BBHs) would merge more efficiently due to the Kozai–Lidov (K–L) mechanism if these binaries form in the vicinity of

Probing the nature of central objects in extreme-mass-ratio inspirals with gravitational waves

We extend the work of Ryan on mapping the spacetime of the central object of an extreme mass-ratio inspiral (EMRI) by using gravitational waves (GWs) emitted by the system, which may be observed in

Phenomenology of GUP stars

We study quantum corrections at the horizon scale of a black hole induced by a Generalized Uncertainty Principle (GUP) with a quadratic term in the momentum. The interplay between quantum mechanics

The stochastic gravitational-wave background in the absence of horizons

Gravitational-wave astronomy has the potential to explore one of the deepest and most puzzling aspects of Einstein’s theory: the existence of black holes. A plethora of ultracompact, horizonless

Gravitational-wave signatures of exotic compact objects and of quantum corrections at the horizon scale

Gravitational waves from binary coalescences provide one of the cleanest signatures of the nature of compact objects. It has been recently argued that the postmerger ringdown waveform of exotic

Spin-induced deformations and tests of binary black hole nature using third-generation detectors

In a recent letter [N. V. Krishnendu et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 119, 091101 (2017)] we explored the possibility of probing the binary black hole nature of coalescing compact binaries, by measuring

Spin-induced orbital precession and its modulation of the gravitational waveforms from merging binaries.

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.

Mass–redshift degeneracy for the gravitational-wave sources in the vicinity of supermassive black holes

Retrieving the mass of a gravitational-wave (GW) source is a fundamental but difficult problem because the mass is degenerate with redshift. In astronomy, three types of redshift exist, namely

arXiv : Gravitational Wave Signatures of Highly Compact Boson Star Binaries

Solitonic boson stars are stable objects made of a complex scalar field with a compactness that can reach values comparable to that of neutron stars. A recent study of the collision of identical

Can environmental effects spoil precision gravitational-wave astrophysics?

[abridged abstract] No, within a broad class of scenarios. With the advent of gravitational-wave (GW) astronomy, environmental effects on the GW signal will eventually have to be quantified. Here we
