[1205.4530] On the comparison of results regarding the post-Newtonian approximate treatment of the dynamics of extended spinning compact binaries

Authors: Steven Hergt, Jan Steinhoff, Gerhard Schaefer

Date: 21 May 2012

Abstract: A brief review is given of all the Hamiltonians and effective potentials calculated hitherto covering the post-Newtonian (pN) dynamics of a two body system. A method is presented to compare (conservative) reduced Hamiltonians with nonreduced potentials directly at least up to the next-to-leading-pN order.
