I shall review recent result at the interface between analytical (effective-one-body-based) and numerical modelizations of the dynamics of coalescing relativistic binaries and the gravitational waveforms that they emit. I'll focus on coalescing black-hole binaries (including the test-mass limit) and inspiralling neutron star binaries, that are among the most promising gravitational wave sources for currently operating gravitational wave detectors.
