Exploring the parameter space of coalescing black hole binaries
Francisco Jimenez-Forteza, Sascha Husa, Alicia Sintes Olives, Alejandro Bohe


Coalescing systems of black hole binaries may be the dominant source of advanced gravitational wave detectors, and one of the key theoretical challenges of the emerging field of gravitational wave astronomy is to accurately model their waveforms. This poster summarizes some of the recent progress in exploring the binary black hole parameter space with numerical solutions of the Einstein equations, and synthesize the numerical and perturbative results into analytically models for the waveforms and properties of the remnant
black hole after merger.
