Figure 1:
Results for the binding energy versus in the equal-mass case (). The asterisk marks the result calculated by numerical relativity. The points indicated by , , and are computed from the minimum of Equation (194), and correspond to irrotational binaries. The points denoted by , , and come from the minimum of the sum of Equations (194) and (202), and describe corotational binaries. |
