The Final Fate of Coalescing Compact Binaries: from Black Hole to Planet Formation


Coalescing compact binaries are thought to be involved in a wide variety of astrophysical phenomena. In particular, they are important sources of gravitational radiation for both ground-based and space-based laser-interferometer detectors, and they may be sources of supernova explosions or gamma-ray bursts. Mergers of two white dwarfs may produce neutron… (More)
