  • Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo have recently published the upper limit measurement of persistent directional stochastic gravitational wave background (SGWB) based on data from their first and second observing runs (O1 and O2) (Abbott et al. 2019c). In this paper we investigate whether a correlation exists between this maximal likelihood SGWB map and the electromagnetic tracers of matter structure in the universe, such as galaxy number counts. The method we develop will improve the sensitivity… CONTINUE READING
