Title: Precision Gravity: From the LHC to LISA and ET

Abstract: The era of gravitational wave science began in spectacular fashion with several detections already reported by the LIGO-Virgo-KAGRA collaboration, and many more yet to come with the future planned observatories such as LISA and the Einstein Telescope. Motivated by these initial breakthroughs and the expected scientific output, a community effort has been established toward constructing high-accurate waveform models for the emission of gravitational waves from binary systems. In this talk I review how ideas and techniques from particle physics — such as effective field theory and novel integration methods — have impacted the state-of-the-art in our analytic understanding of the two-body inspiral problem in general relativity.
