1 Gravitational waves from neutron stars binaries: accuracy and tidal effects in the late inspiral S. Bernuzzi TPIPAF FSU Jena / SFBTR7 M. Thierfelder, SB, & B.Bruegmann, PRD (2011) SB, MT, & BB arxiv: [grqc] (2011) R.Gold, SB, MT, BB, & F.Pretorius arxiv: [grqc] (2011) N.JohnsonMcDaniel, SB, MT, & BB In Prep. (2012)
2 Motivations Binary neutron stars (BNSs) exist and are among the most promising sources of gravitational waves (GWs) BNS simulations: a complex problem (~ supernovae) necessary to select what physics to simulate! Last orbits + merger tidal interactions, significant finite size effects star parameters (radius, Love #) EoS from GWs measure*! Nonlinear regime numerical relativity (NR) evolutions required! Mostly evolutions of quasicircular initial data Started a data analysis / analytic methods comparison* *Read et al PRD (2009) *Baiotti et al PRL (2010), PRD (2011)
3 Questions Circular mergers: How large are tidal effect during the last inspiral  merger phase? Small effects Can we extract this info reliably? How accurate are the simulations? * Eccentric mergers: Are there other tidal signatures? # Are astrophysically relevant? * Miller PRD (2005), Lindblom et al. PRD (2008) # Turner ApJ (1977), Lee et al ApJ (2010)

5 Quasi  circular mergers SB, MT, & BB arxiv: [grqc] (2011) M. Thierfelder, SB, & B.Bruegmann, PRD (2011) Initial data: equal masses, circularized, conformally flat, and irrotational (Lorene, Taniguchi & Gourgoulhon PRD ) Performed ~ 3 orbits and ~ 9 orbits (longest so far!) simulations Investigated truncation errors and finite extraction effects, and systematic source of uncertainties; quantified the former and assigned errorbars (inspiral only!) Checked waveforms against accuracy standard for detection (first time!) Preliminary comparison with postnewtonian approximants

9 Waveform uncertainties Selfconvergence: 2nd order (do not shift!) up to contact (9 orbits) Extrapolation of waveform in resolution (several runs) best case: rad and ~ 0.2 % (contact) Finite radius extraction must be taken into account! Absolute error estimate (upper bound) contact merger

12 Accuracy standards { I 2 = δh w ε/ϱ faithful < h x w 2εM effectual { faithful ϱ 8, ε =0.5, ε M = effectual REM not necessarily the optimal error estimate for DA, but upper bound... Miller PRD (2005), Lindblom et al. PRD (2008)
13 NR Vs PN waveforms T4pp: T4 3.5PN waveform pointparticle, T4td: T4 3.5PN waveform + NLO tidal contribute* ~3 rad Time domain comparison Assume PN valid... Align waves dependency on matching interval are significant significant tidal effects > NLO *Hinderer et al PRD (2010) Vines & Flanagan arxiv: [grqc] (2010) Vines et al PRD (2011) Damour & Nagar PRD (2010) ~1.5 rad
14 Systematic uncertainties Effect of different grid configurations, BergerOliger Numerical viscosity of the HRSC scheme Gauge effects on numerically extracted waves Spurious thermal effect during inspiral... They all potentially contribute (~same order of magnitude), slowly improve with resolution  larger grids ( 2nd or 1/r converging behaviour), only partially under control! M. Thierfelder, SB, & B.Bruegmann, PRD (2011) L.Baiotti, B.Giacomazzo, & L.Rezzolla, CQG (2008)
15 Highly eccentric mergers R.Gold, SB, MT, BB, & F.Pretorius arxiv: [grqc] (2011) Initial data: superposition of two boosted spherical configurations (constraint violating), 50M separation, boost parameter ξ. Equal masses, nonconformally flat, approximately irrotational Performed several simulations varying the initial boost ξ [0.01,0.07] Characterization of orbital dynamics and waves as function of ξ Disk mass in the remnant as function of ξ Relevance for detectability, SNR, accuracy and astrophysical population Role of mass ratio
16 Orbital dynamics /1 Model 1 ξ = 0.01 Model 2 ξ = 0.02 Model 3 ξ = 0.022
17 Orbital dynamics /1 Model 1 ξ = 0.01 Model 2 ξ = 0.02 Model 3 ξ = 0.022
18 Orbital dynamics /2 Orbital dynamics (as ξ increases) : direct plunge 2 encounters + merger multipole encounters (with precession) circular Radial oscillations (trigger by spurious effects?) Nonradial oscillations excited during encounters Model ~ 2: mass exchange during encounter Model ~ 2: massive disk ~ 10% M0(0)
19 Orbital dynamics /2 Orbital dynamics (as ξ increases) : direct plunge 2 encounters + merger multipole encounters (with precession) circular Radial oscillations (trigger by spurious effects?) Nonradial oscillations excited during encounters Model ~ 2: mass generic exchange for several during encounter models! Model ~ 2: massive disk ~ 10% M0(0)
20 Waveforms bursts encounters oscillations compatible with fmode frequency
21 Mode analysis Spherical harmonics projections ρ lm = d 3 xy lmρ Main modes excited: (2,2), (2,0) fmode frequency (2,0) strongly modulated by encounters frequency Upper limit on star rotation
22 Conclusions /1 GWs from NR quasicircular mergers 2nd order convergent up to merger (3 orbits simulations) or up to contact (9 orbits simulations) Estimated uncertainties the waveforms may be used for some quantitative analysis, but extensive error analysis of the numerical data is imperative in every case! Impact on data analysis? PostNewtonian comparison significant dephasing due to tidal effects contribute during the last 9 orbits Several systematic uncertainties: more work required to obtain accurate waveforms
23 Conclusions /2 GWs from eccentric mergers present burstlike structures (encounters) and can contain the star modes signature, as indicated by some Newtonian analysis e.g. Turner (1970), Lee et al (2010) The first set of NR simulations of highly eccentric binaries confirms qualitatively these characteristics In particular a strong fmode (l=2) signature is produced quite generically for several eccentricity values, and can persist for several encounters (> 6) More work is ongoing about the impact of these results for the third generation of detectors, role of masses, accretion disks, and on possible dynamical instabilities
