We present the second Open Gravitational-wave Catalog (2-OGC) of compact-binary coalescences, obtained from the complete set of public data from Advanced LIGO's first and second observing runs. For the first time we also search public data from the Virgo observatory. Our analysis is based upon updated methods to improve detection of compact binary mergers by incorporating corrections for short time variations in the detectors' noise power spectral density and instantaneous network sensitivity… CONTINUE READING
