Abstract: We model analytically a relativistic problem consisting of two quasi-particles each with mass m in close orbit around a static Schwarzschild black hole with mass M = 1 situated at the center of mass of the system. The angular momentum l of the system is taken to be 2. We model the mass density of the orbiting particles as a δ-function and we assume that there are no deformations. To model the system, we apply the second-order differential equation obtained elsewhere for a dynamic thin matter shell on a Schwarzschild background. As it is the case in this paper, the framework on which the equation was obtained is Bodi-Sachs. The only change in the equation is that now the quasi-normal mode parameter represents the particle’s orbital frequency from which we are able to analytically compute the gravitational radiation emitted by the system at null infinity. We note that in a real astrophysical scenario the dynamics of the particles paths will be very dynamic and complicated and that the analytical methods used here will have to be developed further to accommodate that.
