Results for the binding energy EICO versus wICO in the equal-mass case (n = 1/4). The asterisk marks the result calculated by numerical relativity. The points indicated by 1PN, 2PN, and 3PN are computed from the minimum of Equation (194View Equation), and correspond to irrotational binaries. The points denoted by corot 1PN, corot 2PN, and corot 3PN come from the minimum of the sum of Equations (194View Equation) and (202View Equation), and describe corotational binaries.
