Pseudospectrum and black hole quasinormal mode (in)stability

Jul. 15 - 14:30 - 2021

Speaker: Rodrigo Panosso Macedo (QMUL)

Title: Pseudospectrum and black hole quasinormal mode (in)stability

We study the stability of quasinormal modes (QNM) in asymptotically flat black hole spacetimes by means of a pseudospectrum analysis. The construction of the Schwarzschild QNM pseudospectrum reveals: i) the stability of the slowest decaying QNM under perturbations respecting the asymptotic structure, reassessing the instability of the fundamental QNM discussed by Nollert (1996); ii) the instability of all overtones under small scale perturbations of sufficiently high frequency, that migrate to a universal class of QNM branches along pseudospectra boundaries, shedding light on Nollert & Price's analysis (1996).
