    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
