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 FermiExpand

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 theExpand

On the Eccentricity Distribution of Coalescing Black Hole Binaries Driven by the Kozai Mechanism in Globular Clusters
In a globular cluster, hierarchical triple black hole systems can be produced through binary-binary interaction. It has been proposed recently that the Kozai mechanism could drive the inner binary ofExpand

Understanding the Long-Term Spectral Variability of Cygnus X-1 with Burst and Transient Source Experiment and All-Sky Monitor Observations
We present a comprehensive analysis of all observations of Cyg X-1 by the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory Burst and Transient Source Experiment (BATSE; 20-300 keV) and by the Rossi X-Ray TimingExpand

Understanding the long-term spectral variability of Cygnus X-1 with BATSE and ASM observations
We present an analysis of all observations of Cygnus X-1 by the BATSE (20-300 keV) and by ASM (1.5-12 keV) until 2002 June, including 1200 days of simultaneous data. We find a number of correlationsExpand

Orbital Modulation of X-Rays from Cygnus X-1 in its Hard and Soft States
We have analyzed over 2 yr of RXTE/All-Sky Monitor data for Cygnus X-1. We have detected the 5.6 day orbital period in Lomb-Scargle periodograms of both light curves and hardness ratios when Cyg X-1Expand

Searches for periodic gravitational waves from unknown isolated sources and Scorpius X-1: Results from the second LIGO science run
We carry out two searches for periodic gravitational waves using the most sensitive few hours of data from the second LIGO science run. Both searches exploit fully coherent matched filtering andExpand

X1908+075: An X-Ray Binary with a 4.4 Day Period
X1908+075 is an optically unidentified and highly absorbed X-ray source that appeared in early surveys such as Uhuru, OSO 7, Ariel 5, HEAO-1, and the EXOSAT Galactic Plane Survey. These surveysExpand

Observation of Charge Asymmetry Dependence of Pion Elliptic Flow and the Possible Chiral Magnetic Wave in Heavy-Ion Collisions.
We present measurements of π(-) and π(+) elliptic flow, v(2), at midrapidity in Au+Au collisions at √[s(NN)]=200, 62.4, 39, 27, 19.6, 11.5, and 7.7 GeV, as a function of event-by-event chargeExpand
