Implications for the Origin of Grb 051103 from Ligo Observations


We present the results of a LIGO search for gravitational waves (GWs) associated with GRB 051103, a shortduration hard-spectrum gamma-ray burst (GRB) whose electromagnetically determined sky position is coincident with the spiral galaxy M81, which is 3.6 Mpc from Earth. Possible progenitors for short-hard GRBs include compact object mergers and soft gamma… (More)
