The detection of two NS–BH mergers by LIGO-Virgo provided the first direct confirmation of the existence of this type of system in the Universe. These detections also imply the existence of pulsar– black hole systems. In this analysis, we use the non-detection of any PSR–BH systems in current radio surveys to estimate a 95% upper limit of ∼150 PSR–BH binary systems that are beaming towards the Earth in the Milky Way. This corresponds to a 95% upper limit of RLIGO = 7.6 yr−1 on the merger… Expand

Rates of Compact Object Coalescences
Gravitational-wave detections are enabling measurements of the rate of coalescences of binaries composed of two compact objects – neutron stars and/or black holes. The coalescence rate of binariesExpand

Ever since the first pulsar was discovered by Bell and Hewish over 40 years ago, we’ve known that not only are pulsars fascinating and truly exotic objects, but that we can use them as powerful toolsExpand
The Levenberg-Marquardt Algorithm
TLDR
The Levenberg-Marquardt algorithm is first shown to be a blend of vanilla gradient descent and Gauss-Newton iteration, and another perspective on the algorithm is provided by considering it as a trust-region method. Expand
