We derive the classical gravitational radiation from an aligned spin binary black hole on closed orbits, using a dictionary built from the 5-point QFT scattering amplitude of two massive particles exchanging and emitting a graviton. We show explicitly the agreement of the transverse-traceless components of the radiative linear metric perturbations — and the corresponding gravitational wave energy flux — at future null infinity, derived from the scattering amplitude and those derived utilizing…

Graviton particle statistics and coherent states from classical scattering amplitudes
In the two-body scattering problem in general relativity, we study the final graviton particle distribution using a perturbative approach. We compute the mean, the variance and the factorial moments
From boundary data to bound states. Part III. Radiative effects
Abstract We extend the boundary-to-bound (B2B) correspondence to incorporate radiative as well as conservative radiation-reaction effects. We start by deriving a map between the total change in
Eikonal amplitudes from curved backgrounds
Eikonal exponentiation in QFT describes the emergence of classical physics at long distances in terms of a non-trivial resummation of infinitely many diagrams. Long ago, ’t Hooft proposed a beautiful
Black Holes in Klein Space
The analytic continuation of the general signature (1, 3) Lorentzian Kerr-Taub-NUT black holes to signature (2, 2) Kleinian black holes is studied. Their global structure is characterized by a toric
Snowmass White Paper: the Double Copy and its Applications
: The double copy is, in essence, a map between scattering amplitudes in a broad variety of familiar field and string theories. In addition to the mathematically rich intrinsic structure, it underlies
Classical physics from amplitudes on curved backgrounds
: We generalise the Kosower-Maybee-O’Connell (KMOC) formalism relating classical observables and scattering amplitudes to curved backgrounds. We show how to compute the final semiclassical state for a
Conservative and Radiative Dynamics of Spinning Bodies at Third Post-Minkowskian Order Using Worldline Quantum Field Theory
Using the spinning worldline quantum field theory formalism we calculate the quadratic-in-spin momentum impulse Δp_{i}^{μ} and spin kick Δa_{i}^{μ} from a scattering of two arbitrarily oriented


Test black holes, scattering amplitudes, and perturbations of Kerr spacetime
It has been suggested that amplitudes for quantum higher-spin massive particles exchanging gravitons lead, via a classical limit, to results for scattering of spinning black holes in general
Gravitational waves from spinning binary black holes at the leading post-Newtonian orders at all orders in spin
We determine the binding energy, the total gravitational wave energy flux, and the gravitational wave modes for a binary of rapidly spinning black holes, working in linearized gravity and at leading
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.
Gravitational radiative corrections from effective field theory
In this paper we construct an effective field theory (EFT) that describes long wavelength gravitational radiation from compact systems. To leading order, this EFT consists of the multipole expansion,
From Scattering in Black Hole Backgrounds to Higher-Spin Amplitudes: Part I
The scattering of massless waves of helicity |h| = 0, 12 , 1 in Schwarzschild and Kerr backgrounds is revisited in the long-wavelenght regime. Using a novel description of such backgrounds in terms
Gravitational waves from inspiralling compact binaries: Energy loss and waveform to second-post-Newtonian order.
The results of this paper should be of use when deciphering the signals observed by the future I IGO-VIRGO network of gravitational-wave detectors.
Spinning-black-hole scattering and the test-black-hole limit at second post-Minkowskian order
Recently, the gravitational scattering of two black holes (BHs) treated at the leading order in the weak-field, or post-Minkowskian (PM), approximation to General Relativity has been shown to map
Gravitational Bremsstrahlung and Hidden Supersymmetry of Spinning Bodies
The recently established formalism of a worldline quantum field theory, which describes the classical scattering of massive bodies in Einstein gravity, is generalized up to quadratic order in spin —
Gravitational radiation from the classical spinning double copy
We establish a correspondence between perturbative classical gluon and gravitational radiation emitted by spinning sources, to linear order in spin. This is an extension of the non-spinning classical
Scattering of spinning black holes from exponentiated soft factors
Abstract We provide evidence that the classical scattering of two spinning black holes is controlled by the soft expansion of exchanged gravitons. We show how an exponentiation of
