Dressed Primordial Black Hole Binaries - Animations

Animations showing the evolution of a binary of two primordial black holes (PBH), each dressed in a local dark matter (DM) halo.<div><br></div><div>The blue points are DM pseudo-particles (M = 3 x 10<sup>-4 </sup>M<sub>sun</sub>), while the white dots (initially obscured) are the PBHs, each with a mass of 30 M<sub>sun</sub>.</div><div><br></div><div>The pair decouples shortly before matter radiation equality, with an initial semi-major of a = 0.01 pc. The movies show initial eccentricities of e = 0.95 and e = 0.995. </div><div><br></div><div>Further details can be found at the associated GitHub repo - https://github.com/bradkav/BlackHolesDarkDress.<br></div>
