Extreme mass ratio inspirals
Extreme mass ratio inspirals (EMRIs) comprise of a compact
object of a few Solar masses spiraling into a supermassive black
hole, typically found at centers of galaxies. EMRIs are important
sources for space based detectors such as eLISA (evolved Laser
Interferometer Space Antenna).
In this work we used the available 22 post-Newtonian (PN) Flux
for non-spinning EMRIs to calculate accurate PN templates for GWs
from EMRIs. We showed that some of these PN templates were
comparable to high precision numerical waveforms. This was done by
evaluating the dephasing between the PN and numerical waveform over
two years for two Systems, one in the early and the other in the
late inspiral phase of EMRI in the eLISA band.
