The cosmological constant and advanced gravitational wave detectors


Interferometric gravitational wave detectors could measure the frequency sweep of a binary inspiral [characterized by its chirp mass] to high accuracy. The observed chirp mass is the intrinsic chirp mass of the binary source multiplied by (1 + z), where z is the redshift of the source. Assuming a nonzero cosmological constant, we compute the expected… (More)
