Hannam, Mark ORCID: 2005. Quasicircular orbits of conformal thin-sandwich puncture binary black holes. Physical Review D 72 (4) , 044025. 10.1103/PhysRevD.72.044025

I construct initial data for equal-mass irrotational binary black holes using the conformal thin-sandwich puncture approach. I locate quasicircular orbits using the effective-potential method, and estimate the location of the innermost stable circular orbit (ISCO). The ISCO prediction is consistent with results for conformal thin-sandwich data produced using excision techniques. These results also show that the ISCOs predicted by the effective-potential and ADM-Komar mass-comparison methods agree for conformal thin-sandwich data, just as they did for Bowen-York data.
