Abstract

We present an update on Green function methods for modelling Extreme Mass Ratio Inspirals. In particular, we present an accurate, efficient and robust procedure for computing the Green functions of the Regge-Wheeler and Zerilli equations, and show the application to the computation of self-force and energy flux results, considering a range of sample orbits from circular geodesics to unbound encounters. In addition, we demonstrate further possible applications and improvements to the method, including progress in extending it beyond the Regge-Wheeler-Zerilli formalism.
