Hamilton's principle of stationary action lies at the foundation of theoretical physics and is applied in many other disciplines from pure mathematics to economics. Despite its utility, Hamilton'sExpand

Self-force on extreme mass ratio inspirals via curved spacetime effective field theory
In this series we construct an effective field theory (EFT) in curved spacetime to study gravitational radiation and backreaction effects. We begin in this paper with a derivation of the self-forceExpand

Fast prediction and evaluation of gravitational waveforms using surrogate models
TLDR
We propose a solution to the problem of quickly and accurately predicting gravitational waveforms within any given physical model. Expand

Tail effect in gravitational radiation reaction: Time nonlocality and renormalization group evolution
We use the effective field theory (EFT) framework to calculate the tail effect in gravitational radiation reaction, which enters at the fourth post-Newtonian order in the dynamics of a binary system.Expand

Radiation reaction and gravitational waves in the effective field theory approach
We compute the contribution to the Lagrangian from the leading order (2.5 post-Newtonian) radiation reaction and the quadrupolar gravitational waves emitted from a binary system using the effectiveExpand

Non-sky-averaged sensitivity curves for space-based gravitational-wave observatories
The signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is used in gravitational-wave observations as the basic figure of merit for detection confidence and, together with the Fisher matrix, for the amount of physicalExpand

Numerical relativity waveform surrogate model for generically precessing binary black hole mergers
A generic, noneccentric binary black hole (BBH) system emits gravitational waves (GWs) that are completely described by seven intrinsic parameters: the black hole spin vectors and the ratio of theirExpand

Fast and accurate prediction of numerical relativity waveforms from binary black hole mergers using surrogate models
TLDR
We construct an accurate surrogate model, which is evaluated in a millisecond to a second, for numerical relativity waveforms from nonspinning binary black hole coalescences with mass ratios in [1, 10] and durations corresponding to about 15 orbits. Expand

A Surrogate model of gravitational waveforms from numerical relativity simulations of precessing binary black hole mergers
We present the first surrogate model for gravitational waveforms from the coalescence of precessing binary black holes. We call this surrogate model NRSur4d2s. Our methodology significantly extendsExpand

Reduced basis representations of multi-mode black hole ringdown gravitational waves
We construct compact and high-accuracy reduced basis (RB) representations of single and multiple quasinormal modes (QNMs). The RB method determines a hierarchical and relatively small set of the mostExpand
