Study of an optimal detection method for the stochastic gravitational-wave background from the merger of black holes and neutron stars

After the first observation of a gravitational wave produced by the merger of two black holes on September 2015 (GW150914), and now the advent of multi-messenger astronomy with the first observation of the merger of two neutron stars (GW170817), through the detection of both gravitational waves and optical counterparts, the next major discovery could be the detection of the stochastic background created by the superposition of the gravitational signal of all the mergers of neutron stars or black holes in the Universe, too far away or too weak to be detected individually.
