Cataclysmic variables as multimessenger sources: the gravitational wave emission
February 25, 2021
The direct detection of gravitational waves has triggered the interest in gravitational wave sources. Cataclysmic variables are binary sources whose expected emission is in the sensitivity band of the forthcoming space based interferometer LISA, scheduled for launch after 2030. I present an estimation of the gravitational wave emission of about one thousand cataclysmic variables, using the distances estimated with the Gaia DR2 parallaxes. The most promising gravitational sources are AM CVn and WZ Sge systems.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
