In paper I of this series we showed that a large percentage of the binary black hole (BBH) mergers that form through dynamical interactions in globular clusters will have significant eccentricity in the ~10^{-3}-10^{-1} Hz LISA band. In this work we quantify the evolution of these highly eccentric binaries through the LISA and LIGO bands, and compute the stochastic gravitational wave background from the merging, eccentric population. We find that the population of BBHs that merge in-between… Expand

Black hole growth through hierarchical black hole mergers in dense star clusters: implications for gravitational wave detections
In a star cluster with a sufficiently large escape velocity, black holes (BHs) that are produced by BH mergers can be retained, dynamically form new BH binaries, and merge again. This process canExpand
Post-Newtonian Dynamics in Dense Star Clusters: Highly Eccentric, Highly Spinning, and Repeated Binary Black Hole Mergers.
TLDR
Modelling the relativistic accelerations and gravitational-wave emission in isolated binaries and during three- and four-body encounters finds that nearly half of all binary black hole mergers occur inside the cluster, with about 10% of those mergers entering the LIGO/Virgo band with eccentricities greater than 0.1.

The Physics of Eccentric Binary Black Hole Mergers. A Numerical Relativity Perspective
TLDR
This work presents a catalog of 89 numerical relativity waveforms that describe binary systems of non-spinning black holes with mass-ratios, and quantifies the loss of energy and angular momentum through gravitational radiation, and the astrophysical properties of the black hole remnant, including its final mass and spin, and recoil velocity.
