The preprint of my latest paper with Chris Kavanagh and Adrian Ottewill is now available on the arXiv. The abstract for the article is below:
We present analytic computations of gauge invariant quantities for a point mass in a circular orbit around a Schwarzschild black hole, giving results up to 15.5 post-Newtonian order in this paper and up to 21.5 post-Newtonian order in an online repository. Our calculation is based on the functional series method of Mano, Suzuki and Takasugi (MST) and a recent series of results by Bini and Damour. We develop an optimised method for generating post-Newtonian expansions of the MST series, enabling significantly faster computations. We also clarify the structure of the expansions for large values of , and in doing so develop an efficient new method for generating the MST renormalised angular momentum, .
Update: The paper has now been published as Phys. Rev. D 92, 084025 (2015).
