Stationary Approximation to the Spacetime of a Compact Object Binary

Abstract

The gravitational-radiation-induced inspiral of a binary system of compact objects is considered. A scheme is described to model the regime in which the gravitational interaction is too strong to use weak-field approximation methods, but the time scale for decay of the orbits is still long compared to the orbital period, by numerically solving for a… (More)
