Gravitational wave (GW) radiations from numerous cosmic stellar-compact-binaries form a stochastic GW background (GWB), which is expected to be detected by ground and space GW detectors in future. Theoretical predictions of this GWB were mostly obtained by assuming either circular binaries and/or a specific channel for binary formation, which may have some uncertainties. In this paper, we estimate the GWB and its spectrum by using simple models for the formation of both stellar mass binary…

Constraining the Origin of Stellar Binary Black Hole Mergers by Detections of Their Lensed Host Galaxies and Gravitational Wave Signals

A significant number of stellar binary black hole (sBBH) mergers may be lensed and detected by the third generation of gravitational wave (GW) detectors. Their lensed host galaxies may be detectable,

Probing the nature of dark matter via gravitational waves lensed by small dark matter halos

Dark matter (DM) occupies the majority of matter content in the universe and is probably cold (CDM). However, modifications to the standard CDM model may be required by the small-scale observations,

New horizons for fundamental physics with LISA

The Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) has the potential to reveal wonders about the fundamental theory of nature at play in the extreme gravity regime, where the gravitational interaction is



Stochastic Gravitational-wave Background from Binary Black Holes and Binary Neutron Stars and Implications for LISA

The advent of gravitational-wave and multimessenger astronomy has stimulated research on the formation mechanisms of binary black holes (BBHs) observed by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave

Dynamical Evolution of Cosmic Supermassive Binary Black Holes and Their Gravitational-wave Radiation

We investigate the evolution of supermassive binary black holes (BBHs) in galaxies with realistic property distributions and the gravitational-wave (GW) radiation from the cosmic population of these

On the Rate of Neutron Star Binary Mergers from Globular Clusters

The first detection of gravitational waves from a neutron star–neutron star (NS–NS) merger, GW170817, and the increasing number of observations of short gamma-ray bursts have greatly motivated

GW190425: Observation of a Compact Binary Coalescence with Total Mass ∼ 3.4 M⊙

On 2019 April 25, the LIGO Livingston detector observed a compact binary coalescence with signal-to-noise ratio 12.9. The Virgo detector was also taking data that did not contribute to detection due

Laser Interferometer Space Antenna

Following the selection of The Gravitational Universe by ESA, and the successful flight of LISA Pathfinder, the LISA Consortium now proposes a 4 year mission in response to ESA's call for missions

The origin of low spin of black holes in LIGO/Virgo mergers

LIGO/Virgo have reported six binary black hole (BH-BH) mergers. The effective spins of all of them are clustered around Xeff=0. However, the effective spin of one of them, GW170104, has an 82%

A Practical Theorem on Gravitational Wave Backgrounds

There is an extremely simple relationship between the spectrum of the gravitational wave background produced by a cosmological distribution of discrete gravitational wave sources, the total

A potential LISA-Taiji network to fast and accurately localize the coalescing massive black hole binaries to be used as a standard siren to probe the expansion history of the Universe.

The construction and use of LISA sensitivity curves

The Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) will open the mHz band of the gravitational wave spectrum for exploration. Sensitivity curves are a useful tool for surveying the types of sources that
