List of Tables
Hierarchy of formulations of the equivalence principle.
Leading-order effects of alternative theories of gravity, as represented in the ppE framework [Eq. (52)]. For GR . This table is copied from , except for the two entries labeled with an asterisk. The quadratic curvature ppE exponent given in  was , coming from the conservative dynamics. However, it was shown in  that the dissipative correction is larger, giving the value quoted above. The dynamical Chern–Simons ppE exponent given in  was , which was derived using the slow-rotation metric accurate to linear order in the spin . At quadratic order in the spin , the corrections to both conservative and dissipative dynamics occur at lower post-Newtonian order, giving .
Accuracy with which a LISA observation could determine the multipole moments of a spacetime decreases as more multipoles are included in the model, taken from Ryan . The third column indicates the highest multipole included in the particular model. Results are shown for two typical cases, a inspiral and a inspiral; in both cases the SNR of the inspiral is 10.
