Gravitational Waves from Primordial Black Hole Mergers
We study the production of primordial black hole (PBH) binaries and the resulting merger rate, accounting for an extended PBH mass function and the possibility of a clustered spatial distribution.
Searching for primordial black holes with stochastic gravitational-wave background in the space-based detector frequency band
Assuming that primordial black holes compose a fraction of dark matter, some of them may accumulate at the center of galaxy and perform a prograde or retrograde orbit against the gravity pointing
arXiv : Detecting the Stochastic Gravitational Wave Background from Primordial Black Hole Formation
Primordial Black Holes (PBH) from peaks in the curvature power spectrum could constitute today an important fraction of the Dark Matter in the Universe. At horizon reentry, during the radiation era,
Gravitational Wave signatures of inflationary models from Primordial Black Hole Dark Matter
Primordial Black Holes (PBH) could be the cold dark matter of the universe. They could have arisen from large (order one) curvature fluctuations produced during inflation that reentered the horizon
Constraints on the Primordial Black Hole Abundance from the First Advanced LIGO Observation Run Using the Stochastic Gravitational-Wave Background.
It is shown that Advanced LIGO's first observation run gives the best constraint on the primordial black hole abundance in the mass range 1M_{⊙}≲M_{PBH]≲100M_{ ⊙}, pushing the previous microlensing and dwarf galaxy dynamics constraints tighter by 1 order of magnitude.
Merger rates in primordial black hole clusters without initial binaries
Primordial black holes formed through the collapse of cosmological density fluctuations have been hypothesized as contributors to the dark matter content of the Universe. At the same time, their
Stochastic Gravitational-wave Background from Binary Black Holes and Binary Neutron Stars and Implications for LISA
The advent of gravitational wave (GW) and multi-messenger astronomy has stimulated the research on the formation mechanisms of binary black holes (BBHs) observed by LIGO/Virgo. In literature, the
Primordial black hole dark matter and the LIGO/Virgo observations
The LIGO/Virgo collaboration have by now detected the mergers of ten black hole binaries via the emission of gravitational radiation. The hypothesis that these black holes have formed during the
Stochastic gravitational wave background from accreting primordial black hole binaries during early inspiral stage
We investigate the stochastic gravitational wave background produced by primordial black hole binaries during their early inspiral stage while accreting high-density radiation surrounding them in the


On the gravitational wave background from black hole binaries after the first LIGO detections
The detection of gravitational waves from the merger of binary black holes by the LIGO Collaboration has opened a new window to astrophysics. With the sensitivities of ground based detectors in the
Gravitational waves from binary supermassive black holes missing in pulsar observations
It is concluded that binary evolution is either stalled or dramatically accelerated by galactic-center environments and that higher-cadence and shorter-wavelength observations would be more sensitive to gravitational waves.
Low frequency gravitational waves from black hole MACHO binaries
The intensity of low frequency gravitational waves from black hole MACHO binaries is studied. First we estimate the gravitational wave background produced by black hole MACHO binaries in the Milky
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)
LIGO gravitational wave detection, primordial black holes and the near-IR cosmic infrared background anisotropies
LIGO's discovery of a gravitational wave from two merging black holes (BHs) of similar masses rekindled suggestions that primordial BHs (PBHs) make up the dark matter (DM). If so, PBHs would add a
Stochastic Gravitational-Wave Background due to Primordial Binary Black Hole Mergers.
The stochastic background arising from the incoherent superposition of such primordial binary black hole systems in the Universe is computed and it is concluded that constraining the dark matter component in the form of black holes using stochastically gravitational-wave background measurements will be very challenging.
Determining the progenitors of merging black-hole binaries
We investigate a possible method for determining the progenitors of black hole (BH) mergers observed via their gravitational wave (GW) signal. We argue that measurements of the cross-correlation of
Effect of Primordial Black Holes on the Cosmic Microwave Background and Cosmological Parameter Estimates
We investigate the effect of nonevaporating primordial black holes (PBHs) on the ionization and thermal history of the universe. X-rays emitted by gas accretion onto PBHs modify the cosmic
Did LIGO Detect Dark Matter?
It is considered that the black-hole (BH) binary detected by LIGO may be a signature of dark matter, and reasonable estimates span a range that overlaps the 2-53  Gpc^{-3} yr^{-1} rate estimated from GW150914, thus raising the possibility that LigO has detected PBH dark matter.
