Title: Parametrizing scalar corrections to general relativity
Abstract: General relativity passes all tests of gravity so far, but
none of these are in the truly strong-field, dynamical regime of the
theory. On general grounds we expect the theory to be incomplete and
require corrections. I will discuss some forms that corrections may
take and where to look for them. The workhorse will be the
phenomenology of the compact binary system's inspiral, with dynamical
Chern-Simons theory as a prototypical example of a correction. If
nature is kind, we can constrain or measure these corrections with
future pulsar timing or gravitational wave detections.
