GW170817: Observation of Gravitational Waves from a Binary Neutron Star Inspiral.
The association of GRB 170817A, detected by Fermi-GBM 1.7 s after the coalescence, corroborates the hypothesis of a neutron star merger and provides the first direct evidence of a link between these mergers and short γ-ray bursts.
GW151226: Observation of Gravitational Waves from a 22-Solar-Mass Binary Black Hole Coalescence.
This second gravitational-wave observation provides improved constraints on stellar populations and on deviations from general relativity.
Gravitational Waves and Gamma-Rays from a Binary Neutron Star Merger: GW170817 and GRB 170817A
On 2017 August 17, the gravitational-wave event GW170817 was observed by the Advanced LIGO and Virgo detectors, and the gamma-ray burst (GRB) GRB 170817A was observed independently by the Fermi
Combined Measurement of the Higgs Boson Mass in pp Collisions at sqrt[s]=7 and 8 TeV with the ATLAS and CMS Experiments.
A measurement of the Higgs boson mass is presented based on the combined data samples of the ATLAS and CMS experiments at the CERN LHC in the H→γγ and H→ZZ→4ℓ decay channels. The results are obtained
GW170104: Observation of a 50-Solar-Mass Binary Black Hole Coalescence at Redshift 0.2.
The magnitude of modifications to the gravitational-wave dispersion relation is constrain, the graviton mass is bound to m_{g}≤7.7×10^{-23}  eV/c^{2} and null tests of general relativity are performed, finding that GW170104 is consistent with general relativity.
Predictions for the rates of compact binary coalescences observable by ground-based gravitational-wave detectors
We present an up-to-date, comprehensive summary of the rates for all types of compact binary coalescence sources detectable by the initial and advanced versions of the ground-based gravitational-wave
Expected performance of the ATLAS experiment - detector, trigger and physics
A detailed study is presented of the expected performance of the ATLAS detector. The reconstruction of tracks, leptons, photons, missing energy and jets is investigated, together with the performance
The discovery of the gravitational-wave source GW150914 with the Advanced LIGO detectors provides the first observational evidence for the existence of binary black-hole systems that inspiral and
GW170814: A Three-Detector Observation of Gravitational Waves from a Binary Black Hole Coalescence.
For the first time, the nature of gravitational-wave polarizations from the antenna response of the LIGO-Virgo network is tested, thus enabling a new class of phenomenological tests of gravity.
Electron performance measurements with the ATLAS detector using the 2010 LHC proton-proton collision data
Detailed measurements of the electron performance of the ATLAS detector at the LHC are reported, using decays of the Z, W and J/ψ particles. Data collected in 2010 at $\sqrt{s}=7\mbox{~TeV}$ are
