**Gravitational Wave Experiments and Early Universe Cosmology**

by Michele Maggiore

**Publisher**: arXiv 2000**Number of pages**: 100

**Description**:

Gravitational-wave experiments with interferometers and with resonant masses can search for stochastic backgrounds of gravitational waves of cosmological origin. We review both experimental and theoretical aspects of the search for these backgrounds.
