Post-ISCO Ringdown Amplitudes in Extreme Mass Ratio Inspiral

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We study the late time gravitational wave emission from an extreme mass ratio inspiralling binary system. The plunge trajectory from the innermost stable circular orbit (ISCO) is special (somewhat independent of initial conditions). We write an expression for its solution in closed-form and for the emitted waveform. In particular we extract an expression for the associated black-hole ringdown amplitudes.
