DESCRIPTION:Gravitational Waves emitted by inspiraling and coa
lescing compact binary systems requires for their
detection accurate theoretical modeling. In the ea
rly inspiral phase the post-Newtonian (PN) approxi
mation to General Relativity needs to be pushed to
high order for data analysis purposes and high ac
curacy comparison with Numerical Relativity comput
ations describing the final merger and ringdown ph
ases also demand extreme precision. In this talk a
n overview of the problem of deriving the equation
of motion of compact binaries will be given\, wit
h emphasis on the recent efforts applying effectiv
e field theory techniques within the PN framework\
, which are also important for applications to sel
f-force comparisons and effective-one-body calcula
tions.
