[1105.3861] Comparing numerical and analytical calculations of post-ISCO ringdown amplitudes

Authors: Shahar Hadar, Barak Kol, Emanuele Berti, Vitor Cardoso

Date: 19 May 2011

Abstract: We numerically compute the ringdown amplitudes following the plunge of a particle from the innermost stable circular orbit (ISCO) of a Schwarzschild black hole in the extreme-mass ratio limit. We show that the ringdown amplitudes computed in this way are in good agreement with a recent analytical calculation arXiv:0911.3899.
