    • Distinguishing Black-Hole Spin-Orbit Resonances by their Gravitational-Wave Signatures 

      Gerosa, D.; O'Shaughnessy, R.; Kesden, Michael; Berti, E.; Sperhake, U. (American Physical Society, 2014-06-24)
      If binary black holes form following the successive core collapses of sufficiently massive binary stars, precessional dynamics may align their spins, S₁ and S₂, and the orbital angular momentum L into a plane in which they ...
    • Precessional Instability in Binary Black Holes with Aligned Spins 

      Gerosa, Davide; Kesden, Michael; O'Shaughnessy, Richard; Klein, Antoine; Berti, Emanuele; Sperhake, Ulrich; Trifiro, Daniele (2015-10-02)
      Binary black holes on quasicircular orbits with spins aligned with their orbital angular momentum have been test beds for analytic and numerical relativity for decades, not least because symmetry ensures that such ...
