A Precision Cosmology Program with Gravitational Waves Standard Sirens

First detections of mergers of compact binary objects by the LIGO/Virgo network of interferometers have revealed a new, independent, powerful class of distance indicators: gravitational wave standard sirens. In this study we aim at developing the case of a future program aiming at exploring these events for precision cosmology experiments.
