Best post-Newtonian expansion so far?

  1. Feb 28, 2012 #1
    Does anyone know the current state of post-Newtonian expansions? I was reading this old paper from 2002/2003 that has a nice formula for the acceleration of a body under the influence of gravity at the 3PN level.

    http://arxiv.org/pdf/gr-qc/0209089v2.pdf
    (page 11-13)

    I am guessing that the post-Newtonian expansion has been carried out in a consistent manner at least to the 5PN level by now?

    Does anyone have a reference to the current state-of-the-art post-Newtonian expansion?
