Estimating the Contribution of Dynamical Ejecta in the Kilonova Associated with GW170817
The source of the gravitational-wave (GW) signal GW170817, very likely a binary neutron star merger, was also observed electromagnetically, providing the first multi-messenger observations of thisExpand

Event Rate Estimates for LISA Extreme Mass Ratio Capture Sources
One of the most exciting prospects for the LISA gravitational wave observatory is the detection of gravitational radiation from the inspiral of a compact object into a supermassive black hole. TheExpand

Characterization of the LIGO detectors during their sixth science run
In 2009–2010, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) operated together with international partners Virgo and GEO600 as a network to search for gravitational waves (GWs) ofExpand

Observing IMBH-IMBH Binary Coalescences via Gravitational Radiation
Recent numerical simulations have suggested the possibility of forming double intermediate-mass black holes (IMBHs) via the collisional runaway scenario in young dense star clusters. The two IMBHsExpand

Sensitivity curves for spaceborne gravitational wave interferometers
To determine whether particular sources of gravitational radiation will be detectable by a specific gravitational wave detector, it is necessary to know the sensitivity limits of the instrument.Expand

On the Progenitor of Binary Neutron Star Merger GW170817
On 2017 August 17 the merger of two compact objects with masses consistent with two neutron stars was discovered through gravitational-wave (GW170817), gamma-ray (GRB 170817A), and optical (SSS17a/ATExpand

The lisa gravitational wave foreground: A study of double white dwarfs
Double white dwarfs are expected to be a source of confusion-limited noise for the future gravitational wave observatory LISA. In a specific frequency range, this ‘foreground noise’ is predicted toExpand
