Coalescence events of binary systems with two compact objects are among the most promising gravitational wave sources for LIGO. Current analyses of LIGO data constrain the rates of these events given an astrophysical population model for the sources considered. A reasonable assumption is that this population follows the star formation rate, as traced by the(More)

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 and cover wide areas of parameter space, an innovation over previous analyses which requires considerable algorithm development and computational power. The first(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)
