Half-integral conservative post-Newtonian approximations in the redshift factor of black hole binaries

Abstract : Recent perturbative self-force computations [Shah et al., Phys. Rev. D 89, DM11229 (2014)], both numerical and analytical, have determined that half-integral post-Newtonian terms arise in the conservative dynamics of black hole binaries moving on exactly circular orbits. We look at the possible origin of these terms within the post-Newtonian approximation, find that they essentially originate from nonlinear "tail-of-tail" integrals and show that, as demonstrated in the previous paper, their first occurrence is at the 5.5PN order. The post-Newtonian method we use is based on a multipolar-post-Minkowskian treatment of the field outside a general matter source, which is reexpanded in the near zone and extended inside the source thanks to a matching argument. Applying the formula obtained for generic sources to compact binaries, we obtain the redshift factor of circular black hole binaries (without spins) at 5.5PN order in the extreme mass ratio limit. Our result fully agrees with the determination of the 5.5PN coefficient by means of perturbative self-force computations reported in the previously cited paper.
