Thanks to the release of the extraordinary EHT image of shadow attributed to the M87* supermassive black hole (SMBH), we have a novel window to assess the validity of fundamental physics in the strong-field regime. Motivated by this, we consider Johannsen & Psaltis metric parameterized by mass, spin, and an additional dimensionless hair parameter ϵ. This parametric framework in the high rotation regimes provides a well-behaved bed to the strong-gravity test of the no-hair theorem (NHT) using… Expand

It is shown analytically that spacetimes that deviate from the Kerr metric but satisfy weak-field tests can lead to large deviations in the predicted black-hole shadows that are inconsistent with even the current EHT measurements. Expand

Analysis of gravitational-wave data from the first LIGO detection of a binary black-hole merger finds evidence of the fundamental quasinormal mode and at least one overtone associated with the dominant angular mode, and supports the hypothesis that the GW150914 merger produced a Kerr black hole, as predicted by general relativity.
