Gravitational Radiation from Compact Sources  

Single Compact Objects > s.a. Gravastars; gravitational radiation [in other theories]; primordial black holes.
* Core collapse supernovae: The strain is hε1/2 M/D, with ε = energy conversion efficiency, M = mass, D = distance.

Compact Binaries > s.a. black-hole binaries; cosmological expansion; phenomenology.
* Result: In most calculations and simulations, the eccentricity quickly goes down to ~ 0.1, despite some contrary claim (& F Ryan); The emission rate depends on the matter equation of state (through the stars' tidal deformability), and is governed by the "chirp mass"

Mchirp:= mred3/5 Mtot2/5 = (m1m2)3/5/(m1+m2)1/5 .

* Abundance: The estimated number at any given time is 100/(200 Mpc)3.
