Abstract: The Effective One Body (EOB) formalism is an analytical approach which aims at providing an accurate description of the motion and radiation of coalescing binary black holes with arbitrary mass ratio. We review the basic elements of this formalism and discuss its aptitude at providing accurate template waveforms to be used for gravitational wave data analysis purposes.
