Aims. We study the impact of Post-Newtonian correction terms on the energetic interaction between a gravitational wave (GW)emitting supermassive black hole (SMBH) binary system and incoming stars via three-body scattering experiments. Methods. We use the AR-chain code to simulate with high accuracy the interactions between stars and an SMBH binary at separations of ∼ 1000 Rsch. For all of the interactions, we investigate in detail the energy balance of the three-body systems, using both… Expand
