Simulations dedicated to follow up on GW170817; the first combined detection of gravitational waves, a gamma ray burst, and a kilonova, please visit the AEI homepage for additional material.

Gravitational waves during the merger of PSR J0737-3039

Simulation of the double pulsar system PSR J0737-3039, anticipating the emitted gravitational wave signal in more than 50 million years when the two stars will finally merge.

High mass ratio mergers
