@article{Zhu2010ObservationalUL, title={Observational upper limits on the gravitational wave production of core collapse supernovae}, author={Xing-Jiang Zhu and E J Howell and David G Blair}, journal={Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society: Letters}, year={2010}, volume={409} }

The upper limit on the energy density of a stochastic gravitational wave (GW) background obtained from the two-year science run (S5) of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) is used to constrain the average GW production of core collapse supernovae (ccSNe). We assume that the ccSNe rate tracks the star formation history of the universe and show that the stochastic background energy density depends only weakly on the assumed average source spectrum. Using the ccSNe rate… Expand
