RESONANT POST-NEWTONIAN ECCENTRICITY EXCITATION IN HIERARCHICAL THREE-BODY SYSTEMS

- S. Naoz, B. Kocsis, A. Loeb, Nicol'as Yunes
- Physics
- 19 June 2012

We study the secular, hierarchical three-body problem to first-order in a post-Newtonian expansion of general relativity (GR). We expand the first-order post-Newtonian Hamiltonian to leading-order in… Expand

I-Love-Q Relations in Neutron Stars and their Applications to Astrophysics, Gravitational Waves and Fundamental Physics

- K. Yagi, Nicol'as Yunes
- Physics
- 6 March 2013

The exterior gravitational field of a slowly-rotating neutron star can be characterized by its multipole moments, the first few being the neutron star mass, moment of inertia, and quadrupole moment… Expand

Chern-Simons Modified General Relativity

- S. Alexander, Nicol'as Yunes
- Physics
- 15 July 2009

Abstract Chern–Simons modified gravity is an effective extension of general relativity that captures leading-order, gravitational parity violation. Such an effective theory is motivated by anomaly… Expand

Approximate Universal Relations for Neutron Stars and Quark Stars

- K. Yagi, Nicol'as Yunes
- Physics
- 8 August 2016

Abstract Neutron stars and quark stars are ideal laboratories to study fundamental physics at supra nuclear densities and strong gravitational fields. Astrophysical observables, however, depend… Expand

Theoretical Physics Implications of the Binary Black-Hole Mergers GW150914 and GW151226

- Nicol'as Yunes, K. Yagi, F. Pretorius
- Physics
- 29 March 2016

The gravitational wave observations GW150914 and GW151226 by Advanced LIGO provide the first opportunity to learn about physics in the extreme gravity environment of coalescing binary black holes.… Expand

Nonspinning black holes in alternative theories of gravity

- Nicol'as Yunes, L. Stein
- Physics
- 14 January 2011

We study two large classes of alternative theories, modifying the action through algebraic, quadratic curvature invariants coupled to scalar fields. We find one class that admits solutions that solve… Expand

Testing alternative theories of gravity using LISA

- C. Will, Nicol'as Yunes
- Physics
- 25 March 2004

We investigate the possible bounds which could be placed on alternative theories of gravity using gravitational wave detection from inspiralling compact binaries with the proposed LISA space… Expand

Approximate Universal Relations among Tidal Parameters for Neutron Star Binaries

- K. Yagi, Nicol'as Yunes
- Physics
- 22 August 2016

One of largest uncertainties in nuclear physics is the relation between the pressure and density of supranuclear matter: the equation of state. Some of this uncertainty may be removed through future… Expand

Gravitational waves from quasicircular extreme mass-ratio inspirals as probes of scalar-tensor theories

- Nicol'as Yunes, P. Pani, V. Cardoso
- Physics
- 14 December 2011

A stellar-mass compact object spiraling into a supermassive black hole, an extreme-mass-ratio inspiral (EMRI), is one of the targets of future gravitational-wave detectors and it offers a unique… Expand

Challenging the presence of scalar charge and dipolar radiation in binary pulsars

- K. Yagi, L. Stein, Nicol'as Yunes
- Physics
- 7 October 2015

Corrections to general relativity that introduce long-ranged scalar fields which are nonminimally coupled to curvature typically predict that neutron stars possess a nontrivial scalar field profile… Expand
