[0804.0260] Next to Leading Order Spin(1)Spin(1) Effects in the Motion of Inspiralling Compact Binaries

Authors: Rafael A Porto, Ira Z. Rothstein

Date: 1 Apr 2008

Abstract: Using effective field theory techniques we compute the next to leading order Spin(1)Spin(1) terms in the potential of spinning compact objects at third Post-Newtonian order, including subleading self-induced finite size effects. This result represents the last ingredient to complete the relevant spin potentials to 3PN order from which the equations of motion follow via a canonical formalism. As an example we include the precession equation.
