Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The results for two colliding black holes (BH) with angular momentum, spin and unequal mass were presented. A full 3D numerical evolution was used for the computation of gravitational waveforms for a grazing collision. It was shown that the total energy radiated in gravitational waves was consistent with the total initial mass of the spacetime and the apparent horizon mass of the final BH.
