Single, Non-Rotating, Distorted Black Hole

High amplitude disturbance: timeline and apparent horizon

As before the horizon history diagram records the evolution of the black hole's geometry. After a brief tumultuous beginning, a regular pattern of oscillation is revealed. The checkerboard pattern of the previous calculation is replaced by a complex yet periodic patter of curvature. In spite of the complexity of the oscillation, the fundamental period is still about seventeen M.
