The stochastic gravitational-wave background from massive black hole binary systems: implications for observations with Pulsar Timing Arrays
Massive black hole binary systems, with masses in the range � 10 4 10 10 M⊙, are among the primary sources of gravitational waves in the frequency window � 10 −9 Hz 0.1Hz. Pulsar Timing Arrays (PTAs)Expand

Low-frequency gravitational-wave science with eLISA/NGO
We review the expected science performance of the New Gravitational-Wave Observatory (NGO, a.k.a. eLISA), a mission under study by the European Space Agency for launch in the early 2020s. eLISA willExpand

Interaction of massive black hole binaries with their stellar environment. I. Ejection of hypervelocity stars
We use full three-body scattering experiments to study the ejection of hypervelocity stars (HVSs) by massive black hole binaries (MBHBs) at the centers of galaxies. Ambient stars drawn from aExpand

Systematic investigation of the expected gravitational wave signal from supermassive black hole binaries in the pulsar timing band
In this letter we carry out the first systematic investigatio n of the expected gravitational wave (GW) background generated by supermassive black hole (SMBH) binaries in the nHz frequency bandExpand

Limiting eccentricity of subparsec massive black hole binaries surrounded by self-gravitating gas discs
We study the dynamics of supermassive black hole binaries embedded in circumbinary gaseous discs, with the SPH code GADGET-2. The sub-parsec binary (of total mass M and mass ratio q = 1/3) hasExpand

European Pulsar Timing Array Limits On An Isotropic Stochastic Gravitational-Wave Background
We present new limits on an isotropic stochastic gravitational-wave background (GWB) using a six pulsar dataset spanning 18 yr of observations from the 2015 European Pulsar Timing Array data release.Expand

Gravitational waves from resolvable massive black hole binary systems and observations with Pulsar Timing Arrays
Massive black holes are key components of the assembly and evolution of cosmic structures, and a number of surveys are currently on going or planned to probe the demographics of these objects and toExpand
