Fast self-forced inspirals

We present a new, fast method for computing the inspiral trajectory and gravitational waves from extreme mass-ratio inspirals that can incorporate all known and future self-force results. Using

Resonant self-force effects in extreme-mass-ratio binaries: A scalar model

Extreme-mass-ratio inspirals (EMRIs), compact binaries with small mass-ratios 1, will be important sources for low-frequency gravitational wave detectors. Almost all EMRIs will evolve through

The unique potential of extreme mass-ratio inspirals for gravitational-wave astronomy

The inspiral of a stellar-mass compact object into a massive ($\sim 10^{4}$-$10^{7} M_{\odot}$) black hole produces an intricate gravitational-wave signal. Due to the extreme-mass ratios involved,

Relativistic dynamics and extreme mass ratio inspirals

A unique probe of these regions is the gravitational radiation emitted by some compact stars very close to the black holes and which could be surveyed by a millihertz gravitational-wave interferometer scrutinizing the range of masses fundamental to understanding the origin and growth of supermassive black holes.

Gravitational-Wave Energy Flux for Compact Binaries through Second Order in the Mass Ratio.

Within the framework of self-force theory, the gravitational-wave energy flux through second order in the mass ratio for compact binaries in quasicircular orbits is computed, finding good agreement for binaries with a spinning secondary or a slowly spinning primary.

The Orbital Statistics of Stellar Inspiral and Relaxation near a Massive Black Hole: Characterizing Gravitational Wave Sources

We study the orbital parameter distribution of stars that are scattered into nearly radial orbits and then spiral into a massive black hole (MBH) due to dissipation, in particular by emission of

Black hole perturbation theory and gravitational self-force

Much of the success of gravitational-wave astronomy rests on perturbation theory. Historically, perturbative analysis of gravitational-wave sources has largely focused on post-Newtonian theory.

The construction and use of LISA sensitivity curves

The Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) will open the mHz band of the gravitational wave spectrum for exploration. Sensitivity curves are a useful tool for surveying the types of sources that

The first terrestrial gravitational wave interferometers have dramatically underscored the scientific value of observing the Universe through an entirely different window, and of folding this new
