Calculating Precision Gravity Wave Templates from Effective Field Theory

In this talk I will demonstrate how EFT techniques can be utilized to calculate state of the art gravity wave templates used for parameter extractions in Gravitational Wave experiments. I will also discuss how amplitude methodologies can be utilized in the context of potential calculations to reduce calculational loads. In so doing it will be demonstrated that the Schwarzchild geometry emerges directly from an S matrix with no reference to the Einstein equations or diffeomorphism invariance.
