This paper reports a comprehensive study on the gravitational wave (GW) background from compact binary coalescences. We consider in our calculations newly available observation-based neutron star and black hole mass distributions and complete analytical waveforms that include post-Newtonian amplitude corrections. Our results show that: (i) post-Newtonian effects cause a small reduction in the GW background signal; (ii) below 100 Hz the background depends primarily on the local coalescence rate… 

Upper Limits on the Stochastic Gravitational-Wave Background from Advanced LIGO's First Observing Run.

This work performs a search for the isotropic stochastic gravitational-wave background using data from Advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory's (aLIGO) first observing run, and constrain the dimensionless energy density of gravitational waves to be Ω_{0}<1.7×10^{-7} with 95% confidence.

Constraining the Delay Time Distribution of Compact Binary Objects from the Stochastic Gravitational-wave Background Searches

The initial separation of massive star binaries sets the timescale over which their compact remnants merge through the emission of gravitational waves. We show that the delay time distribution (DTD)

The total background may be detectable with a signal-to-noise-ratio of 3 after 40 months of total observation time, based on the expected timeline for Advanced LIGO and Virgo to reach their design sensitivity.

GW150914: Implications for the Stochastic Gravitational-Wave Background from Binary Black Holes.

It is concluded that the stochastic gravitational-wave background from binary black holes, created from the incoherent superposition of all the merging binaries in the Universe, is potentially measurable by the Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo detectors operating at their projected final sensitivity.

Gravitational background from dynamical binaries and detectability with 2G detectors

Improved upper limits on the stochastic gravitational-wave background from 2009-2010 LIGO and Virgo data.

A search for the stochastic background with the latest data from the LIGO and Virgo detectors shows no evidence of a stochastically gravitational-wave signal, and the limits in these four bands are the lowest direct measurements to date on the stoChastic background.

Intensity and anisotropies of the stochastic gravitational wave background from merging compact binaries in galaxies

We investigate the isotropic and anisotropic components of the Stochastic Gravitational Wave Background (SGWB) originated from unresolved merging compact binaries in galaxies. We base our analysis on
