PERIMETER INSTITUTE RECORDED SEMINAR ARCHIVE

Extreme Black-Hole Binaries
Speaker(s): Yosef Zlochower
Abstract: In this talk I will show recent results obtained by the RIT group fromsimulations of highly-spinning binaries including new data that givesnear maximal spins and high-mass ratio binaries. Simulations in bothof these regimes are numerically challenging. However asastrophysical binaries are expected to be highly-spinning and havehigh mass ratios accurate simulations in these regimes are crucialfor understanding the dynamics of realistic binaries.
