Interfacing numerical and analytical relativity for gravitational-wave astronomy: Status and prospects
Speaker(s): Parameswaran Ajith
Abstract: Recent progress in numerical- and analytical relativity enables us to construct analytical waveform templates coherently describing the inspiral, merger and ring down of coalescing black-hole binaries. Such waveform templates not only improve the sensitivity of the searches for gravitational waves f... read more

The Status of Black Hole Binary Simulations
Speaker(s): Sean McWilliams
Abstract: The initial gold rush of exploration into new regions of parameter space has slowed significantly. While our ability to simulate larger spins and more extreme mass ratios has continued to improve, much of the recent progress in numerical relativity has centered on improvements in methodology, in con... read more

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 t... read more

11 Orbit inspiral of unequal mass black-hole binaries
Speaker(s): Ulrich Sperhake
Abstract: We present simulations of non-spinning unequal mass black-hole binaries with mass ratio q=1/4 covering approximately 11 orbits prior to coalescence and merger obtained with the moving puncture technique. Accuracy of the simulations and matching to post-Newtonian waveforms is discussed.
