@article{Fiske2005WaveZE, title={Wave zone extraction of gravitational radiation in three-dimensional numerical relativity}, author={David R. Fiske and John G. Baker and James R. van Meter and Dae-Il Choi and Joan M. Centrella}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2005}, volume={71}, pages={104036} }

We present convergent gravitational waveforms extracted from three-dimensional, numerical simulations in the wave zone and with causally disconnected boundaries. These waveforms last for multiple periods and are very accurate, showing a peak error to peak amplitude ratio of 2% or better. Our approach includes defining the Weyl scalar {psi}{sub 4} in terms of a three-plus-one decomposition of the Einstein equations; applying, for the first time, a novel algorithm due to Misner for computing…

- Physics

A method for extracting gravitational waves from numerical spacetimes which generalizes and refines one of the standard methods based on the Regge-Wheeler-Zerilli perturbation formalism, and analysis of the quasinormal frequencies of the extracted waves shows the possibility that different choices in the wave extraction procedure at a fixed and finite distance may result in relative differences in the waves.
