"Loss of linear momentum from nonspinning inspiralling compact binaries in quasi-circular orbits and the associated recoil"

Anisotropic emission of gravitational waves (GWs) from inspiralling compact binaries leads to the loss of linear momentum and hence gravitational recoil of the system. In this talk, I shall present 2.5PN computations of the loss rate of linear momentum from nonspinning inspiralling compact binary systems in quasi-circular orbits. I shall also show, how these results can be used to estimate recoil velocities accumulated during the inspiral and the plunge phase of binary's evolution.
