The astrophysical science case for a decihertz gravitational-wave detector.

Alberto Sesana, Alberto Vecchio, Ilya Mandel

We discuss the astrophysical science case for a decihertz gravitational-wave mission. We focus on unique opportunities for scientific discovery in this frequency range, including probes of type IA supernova progenitors, mergers in the presence of third bodies, intermediate mass black holes, seeds of massive black holes, improved sky localization, and tracking the population of merging compact binaries.
