Characterizing the galactic gravitational wave background with LISA
We present a Monte Carlo simulation for the response of the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) to the galactic gravitational wave background. The simulated data streams are used to estimateExpand

The Gravitational Universe
The last century has seen enormous progress in our understanding of the Universe. We know the life cycles of stars, the structure of galaxies, the remnants of the big bang, and have a generalExpand

Forward modeling of space borne gravitational wave detectors
Planning is underway for several space-borne gravitational wave observatories to be built in the next ten to twenty years. Realistic and efficient forward modeling will play a key role in the designExpand

Event rate for extreme mass ratio burst signals in the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna band
Stellar mass compact objects in short-period (P 103 s) orbits about a 104.5-107.5 M☉ massive black hole (MBH) are thought to be a significant continuous-wave source of gravitational radiation for theExpand

Scientific Reasoning Abilities of Nonscience Majors in Physics-Based Courses.
We have found that non-STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) majors taking either a conceptual physics or astronomy course at two regional comprehensive institutions scoreExpand

The LISA response function
The orbital motion of the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) introduces modulations into the observed gravitational wave signal. These modulations can be used to determine the location andExpand

Relativistic Effects in Extreme Mass Ratio Gravitational Wave Bursts
Extreme mass ratio bursts (EMRBs) have been proposed as a possible source for future space-borne gravitational wave detectors, such as the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA). These events areExpand

Gravitational Wave Signal from Assembling the Lightest Supermassive Black Holes
We calculate the gravitational wave signal from the growth of 107 M ☉ supermassive black holes (SMBHs) from the remnants of Population III stars. The assembly of these lower mass black holes (BHs) isExpand
