Abstract

After a short introduction to the stochastic GW background I will highlight how one uses currently available LIGO/Virgo/Kagra data not only to learn about compact binaries and the large-scale-structure of our universe, but also to constrain particle physics models beyond the Standard Model, modified gravity proposals, and even quantum gravity theories.
