[1005.0634] Subleading Spin-Orbit Correction to the Newtonian Potential in Effective Field Theory Formalism

Authors: Delphine L. Perrodin

Date: 4 May 2010

Abstract: We study the gravitational dynamics in the early inspiral phase of coalescing compact binaries using Non-Relativistic General Relativity (NRGR) - an effective field theory formalism based on the post-newtonian expansion, but which provides a consistent lagrangian framework and a systematic way in which to study binary dynamics and gravitational wave emission. We calculate in this framework the spin-orbit correction to the newtonian potential at 2.5 PN.
