##### Abstract

Using the main result of a companion paper, in which the binding energy of a
circular-orbit non-spinning compact binary system is computed at leading-order
beyond the test-particle approximation, the exact expression of the
effective-one-body (EOB) metric component g^eff_tt is obtained through first
order in the mass ratio. Combining these results with the recent gravitational
self-force calculation of the periastron advance for circular orbits in the
Schwarzschild geometry, the EOB metric component g^eff_rr is also determined at
linear order in the mass ratio. These results assume that the mapping between
the real and effective Hamiltonians at the second and third post-Newtonian (PN)
orders holds at all PN orders. Our findings also confirm the advantage of
resumming the PN dynamics around the test-particle limit if the goal is to
obtain a flexible model that can smoothly connect the test-mass and equal-mass
limits.
