SUSY in the Sky with Gravitons

  author={Gustav Uhre Jakobsen and Gustav Mogull and Jan Plefka and Jan Steinhoff},
Picture yourself in the wave zone of a gravitational scattering event of two massive, spinning compact bodies (black holes, neutron stars or stars). We show that this system of genuine astrophysical interest enjoys a hidden N = 2 supersymmetry, at least to the order of spin-squared (quadrupole) interactions in arbitrary D spacetime dimensions. Using the N = 2 supersymmetric worldline action, augmented by finite-size corrections for the non-Kerr black hole case, we build a quadratic-in-spin… 
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 —
Classical and quantum gravitational scattering with Generalized Wilson Lines
The all-order structure of scattering amplitudes is greatly simplified by the use of Wilson line operators, describing eikonal emissions from straight lines extending to infinity. A generalization at
Radiated momentum in the post-Minkowskian worldline approach via reverse unitarity
Abstract We compute the four-momentum radiated during the scattering of two spinless bodies, at leading order in the Newton’s contant G and at all orders in the velocities, using the Effective Field
Gravitational spin-orbit dynamics at the fifth-and-a-half post-Newtonian order
Accurate waveform models are crucial for gravitational-wave data analysis, and since spin has a significant effect on the binary dynamics, it is important to improve the spin description in these


The simplest massive S-matrix: from minimal coupling to black holes
A bstractIn this paper, we explore the physics of electromagnetically and gravitationally coupled massive higher spin states from the on-shell point of view. Starting with the three-point amplitude,

A bstractWe provide universal expressions for the classical piece of the amplitude given by the graviton/photon exchange between massive particles of arbitrary spin, at both tree and one loop level.
Spinning gravitating objects in the effective field theory in the post-Newtonian scheme
A bstractWe introduce a formulation for spinning gravitating objects in the effective field theory in the post-Newtonian scheme in the context of the binary inspiral problem. We aim at an effective
Scattering of two spinning black holes in post-Minkowskian gravity, to all orders in spin, and effective-one-body mappings
We demonstrate equivalences, under simple mappings, between the dynamics of three distinct systems---(i) an arbitrary-mass-ratio two-spinning-black-hole system, (ii) a spinning test black hole in a
Revisiting the second post-Minkowskian eikonal and the dynamics of binary black holes
In this paper we study the two-body gravitational scattering of massive scalars with different masses in general spacetime dimensions. We focus on the Regge limit (eikonal regime) of the resulting
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
Higher-order gravitational deflection and soft bremsstrahlung in planckian energy superstring collisions
Abstract The leading behaviour of planckian energy superstring scattering in D space-time dimensions was described in previous papers by an eikonal function which, at large distances, could be
The eikonal approach to gravitational scattering and radiation at O(G3)
Using N = 8 supergravity as a theoretical laboratory, we extract the 3PM gravitational eikonal for two colliding massive scalars from the classical limit of the corresponding elastic two-loop

A bstractWe perturbatively calculate classical radiation in Yang-Mills theory and dilaton gravity, to next-to-leading order in couplings. The radiation is sourced by the scattering of two
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
