                         background produced from a population of core-collapse supernovae, 
                         which form black holes in scenarios of structure formation. In 
                         particular, we take into account in the present paper the history 
                         of star formation derived by Springel \& Hernquist, who employed 
                         hydrodynamic simulations of structure formation in a lambda cold 
                         dark matter (LCDM) cosmology. In addition, and contrary to 
                         previous studies, we consider the effect of taking into account 
                         different values of the ? parameter, the fraction of the 
                         progenitor mass which forms the black hole. Different values of ? 
                         imply different frequency bands for the GWs produced. Because the 
                         sensitivity of the GW detectors depends on the frequency of the 
                         GWs, it is worth studying the influence of ? on the detection of 
                         the background considered here. We then study the detectability of 
                         the GW background produced in scenarios such as those studied here 
                         and discuss what astrophysical informationcould be obtained from a 
                         positive  or even negative  detection of such a putative
