GW170817: Observation of Gravitational Waves from a Binary Neutron Star Inspiral.
TLDR
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.
Toward a halo mass function for precision cosmology: The Limits of universality
We measure the mass function of dark matter halos in a large set of collisionless cosmological simulations of flat ΛCDM cosmology and investigate its evolution at -->z 2. Halos are identified as
GW151226: Observation of Gravitational Waves from a 22-Solar-Mass Binary Black Hole Coalescence.
TLDR
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
GW170104: Observation of a 50-Solar-Mass Binary Black Hole Coalescence at Redshift 0.2.
TLDR
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.
GWTC-1: A Gravitational-Wave Transient Catalog of Compact Binary Mergers Observed by LIGO and Virgo during the First and Second Observing Runs
We present the results from three gravitational-wave searches for coalescing compact binaries with component masses above 1$\mathrm{M}_\odot$ during the first and second observing runs of the
ASTROPHYSICAL IMPLICATIONS OF THE BINARY BLACK HOLE MERGER GW150914
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
Compact Remnant Mass Function: Dependence on the Explosion Mechanism and Metallicity
The mass distribution of neutron stars and stellar-mass black holes provides vital clues into the nature of stellar core collapse and the physical engine responsible for supernova explosions. A
Precision Determination of the Mass Function of Dark Matter Halos
The predicted mass function of dark matter halos is essential in connecting observed galaxy-cluster counts and models of galaxy clustering to the properties of the primordial density field. We
GW170814: A Three-Detector Observation of Gravitational Waves from a Binary Black Hole Coalescence.
TLDR
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.
