Understanding the escape of LyC and Ly$α$ photons from turbulent clouds

Kavli Affiliate: Martin Haehnelt | First 5 Authors: Taysun Kimm, Jeremy Blaizot, Thibault Garel, Leo Michel-Dansac, Harley Katz | Summary: Understanding the escape of Lyman continuum (LyC) and Lyman alpha (Lya) photons from molecular clouds is one of the keys to constraining the reionization history of the Universe and the evolution of galaxies at high […]

Exciting black hole modes via misaligned coalescences: II. The mode content of late-time coalescence waveforms

Kavli Affiliate: Scott A. Hughes | First 5 Authors: Halston Lim, Gaurav Khanna, Anuj Apte, Scott A. Hughes, | Summary: Using inspiral and plunge trajectories we construct with a generalized Ori-Thorne algorithm, we use a time-domain black hole perturbation theory code to compute the corresponding gravitational waves. The last cycles of these waveforms are a […]

Exciting black hole modes via misaligned coalescences: I. Inspiral, transition, and plunge trajectories using a generalized Ori-Thorne procedure

Kavli Affiliate: Scott A. Hughes | First 5 Authors: Anuj Apte, Scott A. Hughes, , , | Summary: The last gravitational waves emitted in the coalescence of two black holes are quasi-normal ringing modes of the merged remnant. In general relativity, the mass and the spin of the remnant black hole uniquely determine the frequency […]

Learning about black hole binaries from their ringdown spectra

Kavli Affiliate: Scott A. Hughes | First 5 Authors: Scott A. Hughes, Anuj Apte, Gaurav Khanna, Halston Lim, | Summary: The coalescence of two black holes generates gravitational waves that carry detailed information about the properties of those black holes and their binary configuration. The final coalescence cycles are in the form of a {it […]
