With haggard features seems to rise
To join the long-drawn, murdered host
That moves with sad, averted eyes,
Like victims to a sacrifice,
To where the Via Sacra lies.

In science:

Dynamical simulations are performed in full general relativity by an adaptive-mesh refinement code, SACRA.
Gravitational waves from spinning black hole-neutron star binaries: dependence on black hole spins and on neutron star equations of state
We note that we systematically underestimated disk masses in our previous works performed with an old version of SACRA [29, 31], because we evolved hydrodynamic variables and estimated disk masses only in the finer domains (described in Sec.
Gravitational waves from spinning black hole-neutron star binaries: dependence on black hole spins and on neutron star equations of state
In SACRA, an AMR algorithm is implemented so that both the radii of compact ob jects in the near zone and the characteristic gravitational wavelengths in the wave zone can be covered with sufficient grid resolutions simultaneously.
Gravitational waves from spinning black hole-neutron star binaries: dependence on black hole spins and on neutron star equations of state
We performed numerical simulations for the merger of BH-NS binaries with various BH spins aligned or antialigned with the orbital angular momentum, using an AMR code SACRA with systematically chosen five piecewise polytropic EOSs.
Gravitational waves from spinning black hole-neutron star binaries: dependence on black hole spins and on neutron star equations of state
In this paper, we study the stability of rapidly spinning BHs with dimensionality d ≥ 6 using a new numerical-relativity code SACRA-ND, which is extended from SACRA and SACRA5D .
