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-force… Expand

Tail effect in gravitational radiation reaction: Time nonlocality and renormalization group evolution

- C. Galley, A. Leibovich, Rafael A. Porto, A. Ross
- Physics
- 23 November 2015

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 effective… Expand

Non-sky-averaged sensitivity curves for space-based gravitational-wave observatories

- M. Vallisneri, C. Galley
- Physics
- 18 January 2012

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 physical… Expand

Numerical relativity waveform surrogate model for generically precessing binary black hole mergers

- J. Blackman, S. Field, +6 authors B. Szilágyi
- Physics
- 19 May 2017

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 their… Expand

A Surrogate model of gravitational waveforms from numerical relativity simulations of precessing binary black hole mergers

- J. Blackman, S. Field, +4 authors R. Smith
- Physics
- 2 January 2017

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 extends… Expand

- Physics, Mathematics
- 26 September 2011

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 most… Expand
