  • Massive black hole binary systems, with masses in the range � 10 4 10 10 M⊙, are among the primary sources of gravitational waves in the frequency window � 10 −9 Hz 0.1Hz. Pulsar Timing Arrays (PTAs) and the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) are the observational means by which we will be able to observe gravitational radiation from these systems. We carry out a systematic study of the generation of the stochastic gravitational-wave background from the cosmic population of massive black… CONTINUE READING
