The second Gravitational-Wave Transient Catalog, GWTC-2, reported on 39 compact binary coalescences observed by the Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo detectors between 1 April 2019 15:00 UTC and 1 October 2019 15:00 UTC. Here, we present GWTC-2.1, which reports on a deeper list of candidate events observed over the same period. We analyze the final version of the strain data over this period with improved calibration and better subtraction of excess noise, which has been publicly released. We… 

Evidence for subdominant multipole moments and precession in merging black-hole-binaries from GWTC-2.1

The LIGO–Virgo–KAGRA collaborations (LVK) produced a catalogue containing gravitational-wave (GW) observations from the first half of the third GW observing run (O3a). This catalogue, GWTC-2.1,

IceCube search for neutrinos coincident with gravitational wave events from LIGO/Virgo run O3

Using data from the IceCube Neutrino Observatory, we searched for high-energy neutrino emission from the gravitational-wave events detected by advanced LIGO and Virgo detectors during their third

State of the Field: Binary Black Hole Natal Kicks and Prospects for Isolated Field Formation after GWTC-2

Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo’s newly released GWTC-2 catalog of gravitational-wave detections offers unprecedented information about the spin magnitudes and orientations of merging binary black

A possible detection of sub-solar mass ultra-compact objects would lead to new perspectives on the existence of black holes that are not of astrophysical origin and/or pertain to formation scenarios

Targeted search for the stochastic gravitational-wave background from the galactic millisecond pulsar population

The millisecond pulsars, old-recycled objects spinning with high frequency O (kHz) sustaining the deformation from their spherical shape, may emit gravitational-waves (GW). These are one of the

Searching for dark clumps with gravitational-wave detectors

Dark compact objects (“clumps”) transiting the Solar System exert accelerations on the test masses (TM) in a gravitational-wave (GW) detector. We reexamine the detectability of these clump transits

An Isotropy Measurement with Gravitational Wave Observations

We constrain the distribution of merging compact binaries across the celestial sphere using the GWTC-3 catalog from the LIGO-Virgo-KAGRA Collaborations’ (LVK) third observing run. With 63 confident

Identification of Binary Neutron Star Mergers in Gravitational-Wave Data Using YOLO One-Shot Object Detection

The study indicates that the YOLOv5 model is an interesting approach for first-stage detection alarm pipelines and, when integrated in more complex pipelines, for real-time inference of physical source parameters.

Searching for mass-spin correlations in the population of gravitational-wave events: The GWTC-3 case study

One fundamental goal of the newly born gravitational wave astronomy is discovering the origin of the observed binary black hole mergers. Towards this end, identifying features in the growing wealth

Clustering of Gravitational Wave and Supernovae events: a multitracer analysis in Luminosity Distance Space

We study the clustering of Gravitational Wave (GW) merger events and Supernovae IA (SN), as cosmic tracers in Luminosity Distance Space. We modify the publicly available CAMB code to numerically

We report on gravitational wave discoveries from compact binary coalescences detected by Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo between 1 April 2019 15:00 UTC and 1 October 2019 15:00. By imposing a

GWTC-3: Compact Binary Coalescences Observed by LIGO and Virgo During the Second Part of the Third Observing Run

The third Gravitational-wave Transient Catalog (GWTC-3) describes signals detected with Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo up to the end of their third observing run. Updating the previous GWTC-2.1, we


Details of the method and computations are given, including information about the search pipelines, a derivation of the likelihood function for the analysis, a description of the astrophysical search trigger distribution expected from merging BBHs, details on the computational methods, and an analytic method of estimating the detector sensitivity that is calibrated to the measurements.

2-OGC: Open Gravitational-wave Catalog of Binary Mergers from Analysis of Public Advanced LIGO and Virgo Data

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

1-OGC: The First Open Gravitational-wave Catalog of Binary Mergers from Analysis of Public Advanced LIGO Data

We present the first Open Gravitational-wave Catalog, obtained by using the public data from Advanced LIGO’s first observing run to search for compact-object binary mergers. Our analysis is based on

Assessing the compact-binary merger candidates reported by the MBTA pipeline in the LIGO–Virgo O3 run: probability of astrophysical origin, classification, and associated uncertainties

We describe the method used by the multi-band template analysis (MBTA) pipeline to compute the probability of astrophysical origin, p astro, of compact binary coalescence candidates in LIGO–Virgo
