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.

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.
