[1007.1218] Detection of gravitational waves from the QCD phase transition with pulsar timing arrays

Authors: Chiara Caprini, Ruth Durrer, Xavier Siemens

Date: 7 Jul 2010

Abstract: If the cosmological QCD phase transition is strongly first order and lasts sufficiently long, it generates a background of gravitational waves which may be detected via pulsar timing experiments. We estimate the amplitude and the spectral shape of such a background and we discuss its detectability prospects.
