[1004.0922] Newtonian and relativistic theory of orbits and emission of gravitational waves

Authors: Mariafelicia De Laurentis

Date: 6 Apr 2010

Abstract: This review paper is devoted to the theory of orbits. We start with the discussion of the Newtonian problem of motion then we consider the relativistic problem of motion, in particular the PN approximation and the further gravitomagnetic corrections. Finally by a classification of orbits in accordance with the conditions of motion, we calculate the gravitational waves luminosity for different types of stellar encounters and orbits.
