## Abstract

We investigate the gravitational self-force effect on eccentric orbits in Schwarzschild spacetime. We derive the formulas of the post-geodesic corrections in some gaugeinvariant quantities (e.g. the fundamental frequencies) in terms of the metric perturbation and the self-force in the Lorenz gauge. With the derived formulas and the numerical data obtained by the self-force calculation code we developed recently, we evaluate these corrections numerically for some sets of orbital parameters. In the circular limit, we find a gauge-invariant relation between the conservative correction in the periapsis advance and the dimensionless gravitational potential. This relation is used to explore both weak-field and strong-field aspects of the Effective One Body formalism.
