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

      Ponce, Marcelo; Faber, Joshua A.; Lombardi, James C. Jr (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 ...
    • Implications of the Delayed 2013 Outburst of ESO 243-49 HLX-1 

      Godet, Olivier; Lombardi, James C. Jr; Antonini, F.; Barret, Didier; Webb, Natalie A.; Vingless, Jacob; Thomas, Morgan (IOP, 2014-10-01)
      After showing four quasi-periodic outbursts spaced by similar to 1 yr from 2009 to 2012, the hyper luminous X-ray source ESO 243-49 HLX-1, currently the best intermediate mass black hole (IMBH) candidate, showed an outburst ...
