STAGE Detecting stellar mass black holes with LISA

Description de la mission

LIGO and VIRGO scientific collaboration has published the first catalogue of black hole binaries
detected during the first and second observational runs. In total 10 systems systems were reported
as high confidence events. During the third observing run, the numbers of detected binaries is already
above 40 and growing.

Those or similar systems should be also observed with the future space-based gravitational wave (GW)
observatory LISA. However while the ground based detectors see the signal only less than a second
before the merger, LISA should observe those systems 5-20 years before the merger giving enough warning
for the observations on the ground about upcoming event(s).

In this internship we propose to consider the stellar mass black hole binaries reported in O1-O2 catalogue
(together with uncertainties in their parameters) and assess their detectability with the future space-based
observatory LISA. This includes also building the tool which could be also applied to the O3 catalogue
which should be released in the near future.
