    Gravitational waves from the early universe? The short answer is yes. It should, to some extent, be able to measure the overall background of gravitational waves in the universe. Provided it reaches its design sensitivity and the background signals can be effectively separated from the gravitational wave background.

    the background signals being the stochastic background arising from quantum fluctuations?; modelled by quantum states and early universe gravitational waves refers to classical phenomena producing gravitational waves, but that occurred in the early universe? Or what are the usual terms used to distinguish early universe gravitational waves

    many thanks
