Abstract

Accurate waveform models are crucial for gravitational-wave (GW) data analysis, and since numerical-relativity waveforms are computationally expensive, it is important to improve the analytical approximations for the binary dynamics. The post-Newtonian (PN) approximation is most suited for describing the inspiral of comparable-mass binaries, which are the main sources for ground-based GW detectors. In this talk, I discuss a method for deriving PN results valid for arbitrary mass ratios from first-order self-force results, by exploiting the simple mass dependence of the scattering angle in the post-Minkowskian expansion. I present results for the spin-orbit dynamics up to the fourth-subleading PN order (5.5PN) and the spin-spin dynamics up to the third-subleading PN order (5PN). I also discuss implications for the first law of binary mechanics.
