Gravitational Wave Modelling

Numerical simulations of neutron stars and black holes provide insights into the possible structure of gravitational wave signals and into other astrophysical phenomena.
The video and the images show a numerical simulation of the gravitational-wave event GW151226 associated to a binary black-hole coalescence.

In this model, a smaller and a large black hole move linearly towards each other and collide head-on. The smaller black hole moves faster, has a high downward momentum and emits strong gravitational waves downwards.
