Regular second order perturbations of extreme mass ratio black hole binaries

Abstract

We report on the first results of self-consistent second order metric perturbations produced by a point particle moving in the Schwarzschild spacetime. The second order waveforms satisfy a wave equation with an effective source term build up from products of first order metric perturbations and its derivatives. We have explicitly regularized this source… (More)
