Gravitational waves and stalled satellites from massive galaxy mergers at z < 1
Speaker(s): Sean McWilliams
Abstract: Pulsar timing arrays (PTAs), which are currently operating around the world and achieving remarkable sensitivities in the ~1--‐100 nHz band, will observe supermassive black holes (SMBHs) at redshifts z < ~1. Until now, all estimates of the anticipated signal strength of these sources have relied p... read more

PIRSA:10060065  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
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
