The structure of the gravitational S matrix and precision gravity wave astronomy

Effective field theory has proven to be a power tool in generating precise predictions for gravitational inspirals. In this talk I will discuss how our improved understanding of the gravitational S matrix can stream line calculations of both conservative and non-conservative dynamics.
