Neutron star equation of state via gravitational wave observations
Gravitational wave observations can potentially measure properties of neutron star equations of state by measuring departures from the point-particle limit of the gravitational waveform produced in

Prior to the observation of a double neutron star inspiral and merger, its possible implications were striking. Events whose light and gravitational waves are simultaneously detected could resolve
Population synthesis of double neutron stars
Using the StarTrack binary population synthesis code we model the population of double neutron stars in the Galaxy. We include a detailed treatment of the spin evolution of each pulsar due to
Motion deviation of test body induced by spin and cosmological constant in extreme mass ratio inspiral binary system
The future space-borne detectors will provide the possibility to detect gravitational waves emitted from extreme mass ratio inspirals of stellar-mass compact objects into supermassive black holes.
Systematic errors in measuring parameters of non-spinning compact binary coalescences with post-Newtonian templates
We study the astrophysical impact of inaccurate and incomplete modeling of the gravitational waveforms from compact binary coalescences (CBCs). We do so by the matched filtering of phenomenological
Status of neutron star–black hole and binary neutron star simulations
We review the current status of black hole–neutron star and neutron star–neutron star binary merger calculations, focusing on recent results about gravitational wave signals and the characteristics
Properties of double neutron stars
We summarize our studies on properties of double neutron stars observable in gravitational waves and in the radio. Binary population synthesis is used to calculate expected masses of neutron stars in
Spectral Methods for Numerical Relativity
This paper focuses on a class called spectral methods in which, typically, the various functions are expanded in sets of orthogonal polynomials or functions, and presents results obtained by various groups in the field of general relativity by means of spectral methods.
Innermost stable circular orbit of spinning particle in charged spinning black hole background
In this paper we investigate the innermost stable circular orbit (ISCO) (spin-aligned or anti-aligned orbit) for a classical spinning test particle with the pole-dipole approximation in the


Last orbits of binary strange quark stars
We present the first relativistic calculations of the final phase of inspiral of a binary system consisting of two stars built predominantely of strange quark matter (strange quark stars). We study
Impact of the nuclear equation of state on the last orbits of binary neutron stars
We present calculations of quasi-equilibrium sequences of irrotational binary neutron stars based on realistic equations of state (EOS) for the whole neutron star interior. Three realistic nuclear
Various features of quasiequilibrium sequences of binary neutron stars in general relativity
Quasiequilibrium sequences of binary neutron stars are numerically calculated in the framework of the Isenberg-Wilson-Mathews (IWM) approximation of general relativity. The results are presented for
The influence of quark matter at high densities on binary neutron star mergers
We consider the influence of potential quark matter existing at high densities in neutron star interiors on gravitational waves (GW) emitted in a binary neutron star merger event. Two types of
Are rotating strange quark stars good sources of gravitational waves
We study the viscosity driven (Jacobi-like) bar mode instability of rapidly rotating strange stars in general relativity. A triaxial, "bar shaped" compact star could be an efficient source of
Tidal interactions of inspiraling compact binaries
We discuss the tidal interaction in neutron star-neutron star and neutron star-black hole binaries and argue that they will not be tidally locked during the gravitational inspiral. More specifically,
An increased estimate of the merger rate of double neutron stars from observations of a highly relativistic system
This work reports the discovery of a 22-ms pulsar, PSR J0737–3039, which is a member of a highly relativistic double-neutron-star binary with an orbital period of 2.4 hours, which implies an order-of-magnitude increase in the predicted merger rate for double- NEUTron- star systems in the authors' Galaxy (and in the rest of the Universe).
A Comprehensive Study of Binary Compact Objects as Gravitational Wave Sources: Evolutionary Channels, Rates, and Physical Properties
A new generation of ground-based interferometric detectors for gravitational waves is currently under construction or has entered the commissioning phase (Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave
Expected masses of merging compact object binaries observed in gravitational waves
We use the well-tested STARTRACK binary population synthesis code to examine the properties of the population of compact object binaries. We calculate the distribution of masses and mass ratios,
