Tests of General Relativity with GW150914.
The LIGO detection of GW150914 provides an unprecedented opportunity to study the two-body motion of a compact-object binary in the large-velocity, highly nonlinear regime, and to witness the finalExpand

A kilonova as the electromagnetic counterpart to a gravitational-wave source
Gravitational waves were discovered with the detection of binary black-hole mergers and they should also be detectable from lower-mass neutron-star mergers. These are predicted to eject material richExpand

GW150914: Implications for the Stochastic Gravitational-Wave Background from Binary Black Holes.
The LIGO detection of the gravitational wave transient GW150914, from the inspiral and merger of two black holes with masses ≳30M_{⊙}, suggests a population of binary black holes with relatively highExpand
