Description

We present results on the encounter of two black holes that are initially on a hyperbolic-like orbit simulated with the numerical relativity code SpEC.
The two black holes either become bound due to the emission of gravitational waves or they escape to infinity. We present trajectories and waveforms for both cases and extract the scattering angle for the latter.
