  author={Chris Kavanagh and Adrian C Ottewill and Barry Wardell},
  journal={Physical Review D},
We present analytic computations of gauge invariant quantities for a point mass in a circular orbit around a Schwarzschild black hole, giving results up to 15.5 post-Newtonian order in this paper and up to 21.5 post-Newtonian order in an online repository. Our calculation is based on the functional series method of Mano, Suzuki and Takasugi (MST) and a recent series of results by Bini and Damour. We develop an optimised method for generating post-Newtonian expansions of the MST series, enabling…

Analytical high-order post-Newtonian expansions for spinning extreme mass ratio binaries

We present an analytic computation of Detweiler's redshift invariant for a point mass in a circular orbit around a Kerr black hole, giving results up to 8.5 post-Newtonian order while making no

We develop new high-order results for the post-Newtonian (PN) expansions of the energy and angular momentum fluxes at infinity for eccentric-orbit extreme-mass-ratio inspirals (EMRIs) on a

New gravitational self-force analytical results for eccentric orbits around a Schwarzschild black hole

We raise the analytical knowledge of the eccentricity-expansion of the Detweiler-Barack-Sago redshift invariant in a Schwarzschild spacetime up to the 9.5th post-Newtonian order (included) for the

Tidal Effects in the Post-Minkowskian Expansion.

The leading and, for the first time, next-to-leading order post-Minkowskian finite size corrections to the conservative Hamiltonian, together with their associated scattering amplitudes and scattering angles are computed.

Experimental mathematics meets gravitational self-force

It is now possible to compute linear in mass-ratio terms in the post-Newtonian (PN) expansion for compact binaries to very high orders using black hole perturbation theory applied to various

Linear-in-mass-ratio contribution to spin precession and tidal invariants in Schwarzschild spacetime at very high post-Newtonian order

Using black hole perturbation theory and arbitrary-precision computer algebra, we obtain the post-Newtonian (pN) expansions of the linear-in-mass-ratio corrections to the spin-precession angle and

Determination of new coefficients in the angular momentum and energy fluxes at infinity to 9PN order for eccentric Schwarzschild extreme-mass-ratio inspirals using mode-by-mode fitting

We present an extension of work in an earlier paper showing high precision comparisons between black hole perturbation theory and post-Newtonian (PN) theory in their region of overlapping validity

Confirming and improving post-Newtonian and effective-one-body results from self-force computations along eccentric orbits around a Schwarzschild black hole

We analytically compute, through the six-and-a-half post-Newtonian order, the second-order-in-eccentricity piece of the Detweiler-Barack-Sago gauge-invariant redshift function for a small mass in

Note on accuracy of the post-Newtonian approximation for extreme-mass ratio inspirals: retrograde orbits

The post-Newtonian approximation is useful to discuss gravitational waveforms for binary inspirals. In this note, for retrograde circular orbits in the equatorial plane, we discuss the region of

Spin-orbit precession along eccentric orbits for extreme mass ratio black hole binaries and its effective-one-body transcription

In this work we present an analytical gravitational self-force calculation of the spin-orbit precession along an eccentric orbit around a Schwarzschild black hole, following closely the recent



High-order tail in Schwarzschild spacetime

We present an analysis of the behaviour at late-times of linear field perturbations of a Schwarzschild black hole space-time. In particular, we give explicit analytic expressions for the field

We extend the gravitational self-force methodology to identify and compute new $O(\mu)$ tidal invariants for a compact body of mass $\mu$ on a quasi-circular orbit about a black hole of mass $M \gg
