Abstract

Using tidal disruption of globular clusters by the galactic centre, we put limits on the total mass enclosed into orbits of observed globular clusters. Under the assumption that the rate of mass loss from the galaxy is steady, we then deduce a bound on this rate. In particular, this bound can be used to constrain the galactic gravitational wave luminosity.
