Effective one body description of tidal effects in inspiralling compact binaries — •Alessandro Nagar and Thibault Damour — Institut des Hautes Etudes Scientifiques, Bures sur Yvette, France

The late part of the gravitational wave signal of binary neutron star inspirals can in principle yield crucial information on the nuclear equation of state via its dependence on relativistic tidal parameters (relativistic Love numbers). In the hope of analytically describing the gravitational wave phasing during the late inspiral (essentially up to contact) we discuss an extension of the effective one body (EOB) formalism which includes tidal effects. We compare the prediction of this tidal-EOB formalism to i) recently computed nonconformally flat quasi-equilibrium circular sequences of binary neutron star systems and ii) complete numerical relativity binary neutron star inspiral waveforms. Our analysis suggests the importance of higher-order (post-Newtonian) corrections to tidal effects, even beyond the first post-Newtonian order, and their tendency to significantly increase the “effective tidal polarizability” of neutron stars. The comparison shows the strong sensitivity of the late-inspiral phasing to the choice of the analytical model, but raises the hope that a sufficiently accurate numerical–relativity–"calibrated" EOB model might give us a reliable handle on the nuclear equation of state
