Modelling Gravitational Radiation from Binary Black Holes
Author and Affiliation:
Centrella, Joan(NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, MD, United States)
Abstract: The final merger and coalescence of binary black holes is a key source of strong gravitational waves for the LISA mission. Observing these systems will allow us to probe the formation of cosmic structure to high redshifts and test general relativity directly in the strong-field, dynamical regime. Recently, major breakthroughs have been made in modeling black hole mergers using numerical relativity. This talk will survey these exciting developments, focusing on the gravitational waveforms and the recoil kicks produced from non-equal mass mergers.
