Black-hole ~BH! binaries with single-BH masses m5(5220)M ( , moving on quasicircular orbits, are among the most promising sources for first-generation ground-based gravitational-wave ~GW! detectors. Until now, the development of data-analysis techniques to detect GWs from these sources has been focused mostly on nonspinning BHs. The data-analysis problem(More)

On 14 September 2015, a gravitational wave signal from a coalescing black hole binary system was observed by the Advanced LIGO detectors. This paper describes the transient noise backgrounds used to determine the significance of the event (designated GW150914) and presents the results of investigations into potential correlated or uncorrelated sources of(More)
Prothrombin, thrombin receptor (ThR), and protease nexin-1 (PN-1) mRNA levels in mouse muscle were quantified using competitive reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction during development and after denervation to examine the possible role of thrombin in activity-dependent synapse elimination at the neuromuscular junction. The results showed that the(More)
We report the observation of a gravitational-wave signal produced by the coalescence of two stellar-mass black holes. The signal, GW151226, was observed by the twin detectors of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) on December 26, 2015 at 03:38:53 UTC. The signal was initially identified within 70 s by an online matched-filter(More)
