Abstract:A new family of initial data sets, along with a study of their evolutions including apparent horizons, event horizons and gravitational radiation, is presented. These initial data sets represent distorted rotating black holes, and two types of non-rotating black holes with odd-parity radiation distortions. The first has the equatorial plane symmetry of the Kerr spacetime, the second has the equatorial plane symmetry of the "cosmic screw" spacetime.
