Analytical modeling of binary black-hole coalescence within the effective-one-body formalism.
Speaker(s): Yi Pan
Abstract: I will review recent advances in the effective-one-body formalism aimed at describing the dynamics and gravitational-wave emission from coalescing black holes. I will discuss the implications of those advances for the search of gravitational waves from binary black holes and for the recoil velocity of black holes formed through merger.
