Naming Conventions

We aim to have consistent naming conventions across the Toolkit. Where possible the following conventions should be used. In all cases the symbols used below should be understood to be adimensionalized, e.g., for the orbital frequencies $\Omega \equiv M\Omega$.


We use geometrized units such that $G=c=1$ and metric signature $(-+++)$.

Binary components

Spin-weighted spheroidal harmonics

Geodesic motion

Mode calculations
