If the gamma-ray burst sources detected by GRO are coalescing binaries at cosmological distances there should be a coincident gravitational radiation signal. Using the GRBs rate we predict the gravitational radiation detection rate as a function of the gravitational wave strain at Earth. This method of predicting the rate avoids the large statistical uncertainties in the current estimates that are based on the three neutron star binaries containing pulsars found, so far, in the Galaxy. The…

SEARCH FOR GRAVITATIONAL WAVES ASSOCIATED WITH GAMMA-RAY BURSTS DURING LIGO SCIENCE RUN 6 AND VIRGO SCIENCE RUNS 2 AND 3
We present the results of a search for gravitational waves associated with 154 gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) that were detected by satellite-based gamma-ray experiments in 2009–2010, during the sixth LIGO
GAMMA-RAY BURST AFTERGLOW PLATEAUS AND GRAVITATIONAL WAVES: MULTI-MESSENGER SIGNATURE OF A MILLISECOND MAGNETAR?
• Physics
• 2009
The existence of a shallow decay phase in the early X-ray afterglows of gamma-ray bursts is a common feature. Here we investigate the possibility that this is connected to the formation of a highly
A method for detecting gravitational waves coincident with gamma‐ray bursts
• Physics
• 2000
The mechanism for gamma ray bursters and the detection of gravitational waves (GWs) are two outstanding problems facing modern physics. Many models of gamma ray bursters predict copious GW emission,
The detection efficiency of on-axis short gamma ray burst optical afterglows triggered by aLIGO/Virgo
• Physics
• 2014
Assuming neutron star (NS) or neutron star/stellar-mass black hole (BH) mergers as progenitors of the short gamma ray bursts, we derive and demonstrate a simple analysis tool for modelling the
Detectable radio flares following gravitational waves from mergers of binary neutron stars
• Physics
Nature
• 2011
Results of calculations are presented showing that the interaction of mildly relativistic outflows with the surrounding medium produces radio flares with peak emission at 1.4 gigahertz that persist at detectable (submillijansky) levels for weeks, out to a redshift of 0.1.
Gravitational wave background from sub-luminous GRBs: prospects for second- and third-generation detectors
• Physics
• 2010
We assess the detection prospects of a gravitational wave background associated with sub-luminous gamma-ray bursts (SL-GRBs). We assume that the central engines of a significant proportion of these
The physics of gamma-ray bursts
Gamma-ray bursts (GRB's), short and intense pulses of low-energy $\ensuremath{\gamma}$ rays, have fascinated astronomers and astrophysicists since their unexpected discovery in the late sixties.
LOW-Γ JETS FROM COMPACT STELLAR MERGERS: CANDIDATE ELECTROMAGNETIC COUNTERPARTS TO GRAVITATIONAL WAVE SOURCES
• Physics
• 2016
Short gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are believed to be produced by relativistic jets from mergers of neutron stars (NSs) or NSs and black-holes (BHs). If the Lorentz-factors Γ of jets from compact stellar
