We calculate stochastic gravitational wave background produced by extragalactic merging binary white dwarfs at the LISA frequencies10−3 − 10−2 Hz with account of a strong evolution of global star formation rate in the Universe recently established observationally. We show that for the observed global star formation history and modern cosmological models the extragalactic background is an order of magnitude smaller than the mean Galactic value. An early star formation burst at high redshifts can… CONTINUE READING
