    • Accretion disks around kicked black holes: post-kick dynamics 

      Ponce, Marcelo; Faber, Joshua A.; Lombardi, James C., Jr. (Jamie) (Institute of Physics, 2012-12-29)
      Numerical calculations of merging black hole binaries indicate that asymmetric emission of gravitational radiation can kick the merged black hole at up to thousands of km s–1, and a number of systems have been observed ...
    • An efficient radiative cooling approximation for use in hydrodynamic simulations 

      Lombardi, James C., Jr. (Jamie); McInally, William G.; Faber, Joshua A. (Oxford University Press, 2015-02-11)
      To make relevant predictions about observable emission, hydrodynamical simulation codes must employ schemes that account for radiative losses, but the large dimensionality of accurate radiative transfer schemes is often ...
    • The influence of neutrinos on r-process nucleosynthesis in the ejecta of black hole–neutron star mergers 

      Roberts, Luke F.; Lippuner, Jonas; Duez, Matthew D.; Faber, Joshua A.; Foucart, Francois; Lombardi, James C., Jr. (Jamie); Ning, Sandra; Ott, Christian D.; Ponce, Marcelo (Oxford University Press, 2016-10-12)
      During the merger of a black hole and a neutron star, baryonic mass can become unbound from the system. Because the ejected material is extremely neutron-rich, the r-process rapidly synthesizes heavy nuclides as the material ...
    • StarCrash: 3-d Evolution of Self-gravitating Fluid Systems 

      Faber, Joshua A.; Lombardi, James C., Jr. (Jamie); Rasio, Frederic A. (Northwestern University, 2010)
      StarCrash is a parallel fortran code based on Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) techniques to calculate the 3-d evolution of self-gravitating fluid systems. The code in particularly suited to the study of stellar ...
