We provide a method for analytically constructing high-accuracy templates for the gravitational wave signals emitted by compact binaries moving in inspiralling eccentric orbits. By contrast to the simpler problem of modeling the gravitational wave signals emitted by inspiralling circular orbits, which contain only two different time scales, namely those associated with the orbital motion and the radiation reaction, the case of inspiralling eccentric orbits involves three different time scales… CONTINUE READING
