Previous: Function: qn_ring()
This example uses the function qn_ring() to compute the black hole
quasinormal ringdown waveform for a preset mode and inclination. The waveform
as a function of time is written to standard output in three columns: the time,
the plus polarization, and the cross polarization. A Plot of the quasinormal
ringdown waveform data is shown in figure .
A plot of the plus and cross polarizations of the
gravitational wave strain, at a (unphysical!)
for the fundamental
mode of a black hole with mass , dimensionless
angular momentum parameter , and fractional mass loss ,
with inclination and azimuth and . The data was produced
by the program ringdown.
