We study gravitational waves (GWs) from a set of 2D multigroup neutrino radiation hydrodynamic simulations of core-collapse supernovae (CCSNe). Our goal is to systematize the current knowledge about the post-bounce CCSN GW signal and recognize the templatable features that could be used by the ground-based laser interferometers. We demonstrate that, starting from ∼400 ms after core bounce, the dominant GW signal represents the fundamental quadrupole (l = 2) oscillation mode (f-mode) of the…
