Electromagnetic and linear gravitational radiation do not solely propagate on the null cone in 3+1 dimensions in curved spacetimes, contrary to their well-known behavior in flat spacetime. Their additional propagation inside the null cone is known as the tail effect. A compact body will produce a signal whose tail will interact with its future worldline, thus producing a tail-induced self-force. We present new results for the tail-induced scalar, electromagnetic, and gravitational self-force for a test mass in orbit around a central mass, including effects from the internal structure of that body.
