27th Capra Meeting on Radiation Reaction in General Relativity, June 17-21 2024, Singapore
The Capra meeting is an annual workshop on the topic of radiation reaction in general relativity. The primary focus of these workshops is the development of the gravitational self-force approach to model extreme mass ratio inspirals and further our understanding of the two-body problem in general relativity. This is done in synergy with other well known modeling techniques such as post-Newtonian theory and numerical relativity. The canonical example of an extreme mass-ratio Inspiral (EMRI) is the inspiral of a stellar-mass compact object into a supermassive black hole. Gravitational waves from these systems are a promising target for the future space-based detector LISA, which is currently scheduled to launch in the mid-2030’s by the European Space Agency with support from NASA.
