      Resonances with multiple black holes 30m

      Resonances are ubiquitous in nature. In this talk, I will focus on
      resonances due to the interaction of two black holes orbiting a central
      massive black hole. Such tidal resonances will generically occur for
      Extreme Mass Ratio Inspirals (EMRIs), if nearby compact objects exist.
      By probing their influence on the waveform, we can in principle extract
      information about the environmental tidal field of the EMRI system,
      albeit at the cost of a more complicated waveform model.
