The main result of this paper is to present an ... More

Subexponential tail equivalence of the queue length distributions of BMAP/GI/1 queues with and without retrialsOct 17 2013Jul 06 2014The main contribution of this paper is to prove the subexponential tail equivalence of the stationary queue length distributions in the BMAP/GI/1 queues with and without retrials. We first present a stochastic-decomposition-like result of the stationary ... More

Fluctuation of density of states for 1d Schrödinger operatorsMay 19 2016We consider the 1d Schr\"odinger operator with random decaying potential and compute the 2nd term asymptotics of the density of states, which shows substantial differences between the cases $\alpha > \frac 12$, $\alpha < \frac 12$ and $\alpha = \frac ...

Perturbative effects of spinning black holes with applications to recoil velocitiesNov 11 2010Recently, we proposed an enhancement of the Regge-Wheeler-Zerilli formalism for first-order perturbations about a Schwarzschild background that includes first-order corrections due to the background black-hole spin. Using this formalism, we investigate ... More

Asymptotically Matched Spacetime Metric for Non-Precessing, Spinning Black Hole BinariesAug 31 2012We construct a closed-form, fully analytical 4-metric that approximately represents the spacetime evolution of non-precessing, spinning black hole binaries from infinite separations up to a few orbits prior to merger. We employ the technique of asymptotic ... More

Intermediate-mass-ratio black hole binaries II: Modeling Trajectories and Gravitational WaveformsAug 22 2011We revisit the scenario of small-mass-ratio (q) black-hole binaries; performing new, more accurate, simulations of mass ratios 10:1 and 100:1 for initially nonspinning black holes. We propose fitting functions for the trajectories of the two black holes ... More

Calculating the gravitational self force in Schwarzschild spacetimeNov 01 2001Feb 14 2002We present a practical method for calculating the local gravitational self-force (often called ``radiation-reaction force'') for a pointlike particle orbiting a Schwarzschild black hole. This is an implementation of the method of {\it mode-sum regularization}, ... More
