Title:  Classical physics of spinning black holes and compact stars from amplitudes

Abstract: One of the recent applications of modern amplitude techniques is the determination of classical dynamics of the two-body problem with relativistic corrections, also known as post-Newtonian dynamics. I will explain how spin can be incorporated in this programme, putting an emphasis on the physical meaning of higher-order spin effects and their implementations. Two examples of classical physics that can be computed from amplitudes to all orders in spin will be presented; the 1PM spinning Hamiltonian and the matter stress tensor of Kerr-Newman black holes.
