CENTRA Seminar – Sergi Navarro Albalat (Zoom meeting)

Sergi Navarro Albalat (University of Texas at Austin) will give a CENTRA seminar entitled “Self-force corrections from numerical relativity simulations of black hole binary systems”.

The seminar will take place on 2nd April 2020, at 14:30, using Zoom video conferencing (link: https://zoom.us/j/282040831 / contact justin.feng@tecnico.ulisboa.pt).

Abstract:
In this talk I will present a method to extract and analyze the binding energy of the binary black hole system from numerical simulations of non-spinning, quasicircular binary black hole systems with varying mass ratios. The goal of this analysis is twofold: making contact with self force predictions and also providing a consistency test of the numerical simulations.
