Recent observations support the hypothesis that a large fraction of “short-hard” gamma-ray bursts (SHBs) are associated with the inspiral and merger of compact binaries. Since gravitational-wave (GW) measurements of well-localized inspiraling binaries can measure absolute source distances with high accuracy, simultaneous observation of a binary’s GWs and SHB would allow us to directly and independently determine both the binary’s luminosity distance and its redshift. Such a “standard siren… Expand
