How close can we approach the event horizon of the Kerr black hole from the detection of gravitational quasinormal modes?

Using the Wentzel–Kramers–Brillouin method, we show that the peak location ($r_{\rm peak}$) of the potential, which determines the quasinormal mode frequency of the Kerr black hole, obeys an accurate empirical relation as a function of the specific angular momentum $a$ and the gravitational mass $M$. If the quasinormal mode with $a/M \sim 1$ is observed by gravitational wave...

Perfusion MR imaging detection of carcinoma arising from preexisting salivary gland pleomorphic adenoma by computer-assisted analysis of time-signal intensity maps

Tumor perfusion can be evaluated by analyzing the time-signal intensity curve (TIC) after dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) MR imaging. Accordingly, TIC profiles are characteristic of some benign and malignant salivary gland tumors. A carcinoma ex pleomorphic adenoma (CXPA) arises from a long-standing pleomorphic adenoma (PA) and has a distinctive prognostic risk depending on the...

Possible confirmation of the existence of the ergoregion by the Kerr quasinormal mode in gravitational waves from a Population III massive black hole binary

The existence of the ergoregion of the Kerr space-time has not yet been confirmed observationally. We show that the confirmation would be possible by observing the quasinormal mode in gravitational waves. As an example, using the recent population synthesis results of Population III (Pop III) binary black holes, we find that the peak of the final merger mass ($M_f$) is about $50...

The detection of quasinormal mode with a/M = 0.95 would prove a sphere 99% soaking in the ergoregion of the Kerr space-time1

Recent numerical relativity simulations of mergers of binary black holes suggest that the maximum final value of $a/M$ is ${\sim }0.95$ for the coalescence of two equal-mass black holes with aligned spins of the same magnitude $a/M=0.994$, which is close to the upper limit $a/M=0.998$ of accretion spin-up shown by Thorne [Astrophys. J. 191, 507 (1974)]. Using the Wentzel–Kramers...

Estimate of the radius responsible for quasinormal modes in the extreme Kerr limit and asymptotic behavior of the Sasaki–Nakamura transformation

The Sasaki–Nakamura transformation gives a short-ranged potential and a convergent source term for the master equation of perturbations in the Kerr space-time. In this paper, we study the asymptotic behavior of the transformation, and present a new relaxed necessary and sufficient condition for the transformation to obtain the short-ranged potential in the assumption that the...

Pannexin 3 regulates proliferation and differentiation of odontoblasts via its hemichannel activities

Highly coordinated regulation of cell proliferation and differentiation contributes to the formation of functionally shaped and sized teeth; however, the mechanism underlying the switch from cell cycle exit to cell differentiation during odontogenesis is poorly understood. Recently, we identified pannexin 3 (Panx3) as a member of the pannexin gap junction protein family from...

Pre-DECIGO can get the smoking gun to decide the astrophysical or cosmological origin of GW150914-like binary black holes

Pre-DECIGO (DECihertz laser Interferometer Gravitational wave Observatory) consists of three spacecraft arranged in an equilateral triangle with 100 km arm lengths orbiting 2000 km above the surface of the earth. It is hoped that the launch date will be in the late 2020s. Pre-DECIGO has one clear target: binary black holes (BBHs) like GW150914 and GW151226. Pre-DECIGO can detect...
