We are currently investigating the systematic bias induced by neglecting spin precession, eccentricity and higher modes. We find that the bias can be strong enough to contaminate tests of general relativity. Here you can find the preliminary results that I presented at the 2023 April APS meeting.

We constructed `read-to-use' Fourier-domain gravitational waveforms from an inner binary in a hierarchical triple, by accounting for the Kozai-Lidov oscillations induced by the third body. We modeled the effect to leading order in conservative and dissipative dynamics and found that there is a strong imprint on the gravitational-wave amplitude and a measurable effect on the gravitational-wave phase.
