Regularization of the the second-order gravitational perturbations produced by a compact object Eran Rosenthal University of Guelph - Canada Amos Ori Technion – Israel Institute of Technology
Presentation of the problem Problem: calculation of at the limit such that. Consider a Schwarzschild black-hole with a mass moving in a vacuum background spacetime with radius of curvature Background metric Full metric
Practical motivation Accurate calculation of the accumulating phase for long gravitational wave trains emitted from an extreme mass-ratio binary system (Lior Burko, Eric Poisson). These calculations can be used to construct accurate waveforms for LISA. This requires accurate calculation of the orbit (of the smaller mass object) in the background spacetime induced by the more massive object.
Geodesic in the background spacetime Perturbative approach to the calculation of the orbit First order self-force corrections Second order self-force corrections requires
Gravitational perturbations at the limit Solution in the external zone world-line Produced by a Schwarzschild black-hole with a mass moving in a vacuum background Produced by a Schwarzschild black-hole with a mass moving in a vacuum background spacetime Background metric (Lorenz gauge) The world line is a geodesic with respect to the background
At the leading order is a geodesic with respect to the background spacetime. Higher order corrections will be discussed later. (General gauge) Second-order gravitational perturbations
Calculation of - main difficulties Consider the linear differential equations for obtained from Einstein equations. Schematically written as Naive construction of the 2 nd order retarded solution diverges at every point in spacetime. Non-integrable source terms !

Particular solution in (1 st order) Fermi gauge Retarded solution Consider the following 1 st order gauge: Fermi gauge Geodesic: No corrections of order The world-line Corrections to a geodesic world-line which come from the first order self- force induce a 2 nd order corrections to the gravitational perturbations.
