The article reviews the current status of a theoretical approach to the problem of the emission of gravitational waves by isolated systems in the context of general relativity. Part A of the article deals with general post-Newtonian sources. The exterior field of the source is investigated by means of a combination of analytic post-Minkowskian and multipolar approximations. The physical observables in the far-zone of the source are described by a specific set of radiative multipole moments. By… 
Multivariate classification with random forests for gravitational wave searches of black hole binary coalescence
The random forest of bagged decision trees technique is applied to two separate searches in the high mass parameter space and the techniques used to tune and train the random forest classifier that can be generalized to its use in other searches for gravitational waves are described.
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.
Time-domain inspiral templates for spinning compact binaries in quasi-circular orbits described by their orbital angular momenta
We present a prescription to compute the time-domain gravitational wave (GW) polarization states associated with spinning compact binaries inspiraling along quasi-circular orbits. We invoke the
Spin induced multipole moments for the gravitational wave amplitude from binary inspirals to 2.5 Post-Newtonian order
Using the NRGR effective field theory formalism we calculate the remaining source multipole moments necessary to obtain the spin contributions to the gravitational wave amplitude to 2.5
NR/HEP: Roadmap for the future
Physic in curved spacetime describes a multitude of phenomena, ranging from astrophysics to high-energy physics (HEP). The last few years have witnessed further progress on several fronts, including
Publisher’s Note: Search for gravitational waves from binary black hole inspiral, merger, and ringdown
The winners and runners-up in this competition will be announced at a later date, but it is likely that some of the winners will have already been announced in the competition.
Spin induced multipole moments for the gravitational wave flux from binary inspirals to third Post-Newtonian order
Using effective field theory techniques we calculate the source multipole moments needed to obtain the spin contributions to the power radiated in gravitational waves from inspiralling compact
Multipolar equations of motion for extended test bodies in general relativity
We derive the equations of motion of an extended test body in the context of Einstein's theory of gravitation. The equations of motion are obtained via a multipolar approximation method and are given
Advances in Simulations of Generic Black-Hole Binaries
A new approach for generating hybrid post-Newtonian / Numerical waveforms for these challenging systems of generic, highly-precessing, black-hole binaries is introduced.
