    • 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 ...
    • Multi-Timescale Analysis of Phase Transitions in Precessing Black-Hole Binaries 

      Gerosa, D.; Kesden, Michael; Sperhake, U.; Berti, E.; O'Shaughnessy, R. (American Physical Society, 2015-09-14)
      The dynamics of precessing binary black holes (BBHs) in the post-Newtonian regime has a strong timescale hierarchy: the orbital timescale is very short compared to the spin-precession timescale which, in turn, is much ...
