Comparing an analytical spacetime metric for a merging binary to a fully nonlinear numerical evolution using curvature scalars

28 Mar 2018 Sadiq Jam Zlochower Yosef Nakano Hiroyuki

We introduce a new geometrically invariant prescription for comparing two different spacetimes based on geodesic deviation. We use this method to compare a family of recently introduced analytical spacetime representing inspiraling black-hole binaries to fully nonlinear numerical solutions to the Einstein equations...
