Effective field theory for compact object evolution in binary inspirals

  title={Effective field theory for compact object evolution in binary inspirals},
  author={Irvin Mart{\'i}nez and Amanda Weltman},
Using the effective field theory framework for extended objects we describe the evolution of spinning compact objects in the late inspiral of the coalescence of a binary, before the plunge and merger, by including leading order corrections due to spin, tides, dissipation and gravitational wave radiation. Our implementation is of particular relevance for probing the stellar structure of compact objects with gravitational wave observations. A spinning compact object in the effective field theory…

Effective field theories of gravity and compact binary dynamics: A Snowmass 2021 whitepaper

In this whitepaper, I describe modern applications of effective field theory (EFT) techniques to classical and quantum gravity, with relevance to problems in astrophysics and cosmology. As in



Gravitational Radiation from Post-Newtonian Sources and Inspiralling Compact Binaries

The current state of the art on post-Newtonian methods as applied to the dynamics and gravitational radiation of general matter sources (including the radiation reaction back onto the source) and inspiralling compact binaries is presented.

Effective field theory of gravity for extended objects

Using effective field theory (EFT) methods we present a Lagrangian formalism which describes the dynamics of nonrelativistic extended objects coupled to gravity. The formalism is relevant to

Spinning gravitating objects in the effective field theory in the post-Newtonian scheme

A bstractWe introduce a formulation for spinning gravitating objects in the effective field theory in the post-Newtonian scheme in the context of the binary inspiral problem. We aim at an effective

Effective one body description of tidal effects in inspiralling compact binaries

The late part of the gravitational wave signal of binary neutron-star (or black-hole-neutron-star) inspirals can in principle yield crucial information on the nuclear equation of state via its

: Using the effective field theory framework for extended objects, we build the effective theory of a binary system made up of the most general compact objects in a theory of gravity as general

Effective action and linear response of compact objects in Newtonian gravity

We apply an effective field theory method for the gravitational interaction of compact stars, developed within the context of general relativity, to Newtonian gravity. In this effective theory, a

Dissipative effects in the worldline approach to black hole dynamics

We derive a long wavelength effective point-particle description of four-dimensional Schwarzschild black holes. In this effective theory, absorptive effects are incorporated by introducing degrees of

Comparison of post-Newtonian templates for compact binary inspiral signals in gravitational-wave detectors

The two-body dynamics in general relativity has been solved perturbatively using the post-Newtonian (PN) approximation. The evolution of the orbital phase and the emitted gravitational radiation are

Evolution of binary black-hole spacetimes.

Early success is described in the evolution of binary black-hole spacetimes with a numerical code based on a generalization of harmonic coordinates capable of evolving binary systems for enough time to extract information about the orbit, merger, and gravitational waves emitted during the event.

Exploring strong-field deviations from general relativity via gravitational waves

Two new observational windows have been opened to strong gravitational physics: gravitational waves, and very long baseline interferometry. This suggests observational searches for new phenomena in
