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

Gravitational self-force in extreme mass-ratio inspirals

This review is concerned with the gravitational self-force acting on a mass particle in orbit around a large black hole. Renewed interest in this old problem is driven by the prospects of detecting

The Motion of Point Particles in Curved Spacetime

The mathematical tools required to derive the equations of motion of a point scalar charge, a point electric charge, and a point mass in a specified background spacetime are developed here from scratch.

Building upon previous results in scalar field theory, a formalism is developed that uses generalized Killing fields to understand the behavior of extended charges interacting with their own

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

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

Self-forces from generalized Killing fields

A non-perturbative formalism is developed that simplifies the understanding of self-forces and self-torques acting on extended scalar charges in curved spacetimes. Laws of motion are locally derived
