[0911.3899] Universal Ringdown Amplitudes in Extreme Mass Ratio Inspiral

Authors: Shahar Hadar, Barak Kol

Date: 20 Nov 2009

Abstract: An extreme mass ratio inspiral consists of two parts: adiabatic inspiral and plunge. The plunge trajectory is quite universal (independent of initial conditions). We write an expression for its solution in closed-form and for the emitted universal waveform. In particular we extract an expression for the universal black-hole ringdown amplitudes, which reduces to solving certain ordinary (radial) differential equations in the Schwarzschild background.
