∗ Previous affiliations where part of this work was carried out. A scalar charged particle moving in a curved background spacetime will emit a field effecting its own motion; the resolving of this resulting motion is often referred to as the self-force problem. This also serves as a toy model for the astrophysically interesting compact body binaries, Extreme Mass Ratio Inspirals, targets for the future space-based gravitational wave detector, LISA. In the modelling of such systems, a point particle…

Adiabatic evolution due to the conservative scalar self-force during orbital resonances

We calculate the scalar self-force experienced by a scalar point-charge orbiting a Kerr black hole along rθ -resonant geodesics. We use the self-force to calculate the averaged rate of change of the

Eccentric self-forced inspirals into a rotating black hole

We develop the first model for extreme mass-ratio inspirals (EMRIs) into a rotating massive black hole driven by the gravitational self-force (GSF). Our model is based on an action angle formulation

KAGRA: 2.5 generation interferometric gravitational wave detector

The recent detections of gravitational waves (GWs) reported by LIGO/Virgo collaborations have made significant impact on physics and astronomy. A global network of GW detectors will play a key role

Accelerated motion and the self-force in Schwarzschild spacetime

We provide expansions of the Detweiler–Whiting singular field for a particle with a scalar field moving along arbitrary, planar accelerated trajectories in Schwarzschild spacetime. We transcribe

Prospects for observing extreme-mass-ratio inspirals with LISA

One of the key astrophysical sources for the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) are the inspirals of stellar-origin compact objects into massive black holes in the centres of galaxies. These
