Spectral separation of the stochastic gravitational-wave background for LISA: Observing both cosmological and astrophysical backgrounds

With the goal of attempting to observe a stochastic gravitational wave background (SGWB) with LISA, the spectral separability of the cosmological and astrophysical backgrounds is important to

Noisy neighbours: inference biases from overlapping gravitational-wave signals

Generic metrics to predict inference biases on GW source parameters in the presence of confusion noise from unfitted foregrounds, from overlapping signals that coalesce close in time to one another, and from residuals of other signals that have been incorrectly fitted out are described.

Spectral separation of the stochastic gravitational-wave background for LISA in the context of a modulated Galactic foreground

Within its observational band the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna, LISA, will simultaneously observe orbital modulated waveforms from Galactic white dwarf binaries, a binary black hole produced

Detecting primordial features with LISA

Oscillations in the frequency profile of the stochastic gravitational wave background are a characteristic prediction of small-scale features during inflation. In this paper we present a first

Testing Primordial Black Holes with multi-band observations of the stochastic gravitational wave background

The mass distribution of Primordial Black Holes (PBHs) is affected by drops in the pressure of the early Universe plasma. For example, events in the standard model of particle physics, such as the W

Resolving Galactic binaries using a network of space-borne gravitational wave detectors

Extracting gravitational wave (GW) signals from individual Galactic binaries (GBs) against their self-generated confusion noise is a key data analysis challenge for space-borne detectors operating in

Constraining changes in the merger history of BH and PBH binaries with the stochastic gravitational wave background

Black holes binaries coming from a distribution of primordial black holes might exhibit a large merger rate up to large redshifts. Using a phenomenological model for the merger rate, we show that

EFPE: Efficient fully precessing eccentric gravitational waveforms for binaries with long inspirals

In this paper, we derive a set of equations of motions for binaries on eccentric orbits undergoing spin-induced precession that can efficiently be integrated on the radiation-reaction timescale. We

Assessing the data-analysis impact of LISA orbit approximations using a GPU-accelerated response model

The analysis of gravitational-wave (GW) datasets is based on the comparison of measured time series with theoretical templates of the detector’s response to a variety of source parameters. For the



Improved reconstruction of a stochastic gravitational wave background with LISA

We present a data analysis methodology for a model-independent reconstruction of the spectral shape of a stochastic gravitational wave background with LISA. We improve a previously proposed

Detectability of Double White Dwarfs in the Local Group with LISA

Detached double white dwarf (DWD) binaries are one of the main science cases for the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA). As the most numerous LISA sources, they will provide important

Foreground cleaning and template-free stochastic background extraction for LISA

Based on the rate of resolved stellar origin black hole and neutron star mergers measured by LIGO and Virgo, it is expected that these detectors will also observe an unresolved Stochastic

Double white dwarfs and LISA

Close pairs of white dwarfs are potential progenitors of type Ia supernovae and they are common, with the order of 100–300 million in the Galaxy. As such they will be significant, probably dominant,

Double white dwarf (DWD) binaries are expected to be very common in the Milky Way, but their intrinsic faintness challenges the detection of these systems. Currently, only a few tens of detached DWDs
