Matched-filter study and energy budget suggest no detectable gravitational-wave ‘extended emission’ from GW170817
Van Putten & Della Valle (2018) have reported a possible detection of gravitational-wave 'extended emission' from a neutron star remnant of GW170817. Starting from the time-frequency evolution and

Using measurements from Fermi, VERITAS in southern Arizona, and other telescopes, researchers revealed for the first time the origins of a high-energy neutrino, tracing it to a supermassive black hole at the center of a distant galaxy.
Multi-messenger Extended Emission from the Compact Remnant in GW170817
GW170817/GRB170817A probably marks a double neutron star coalescence. Extended Emission $t_s\simeq (0.67\pm0.03)$\,s post-merger shows an estimated energy output ${\cal E}\simeq (3.5\pm1)\%M_\odot
Search for Gravitational Waves from a Long-lived Remnant of the Binary Neutron Star Merger GW170817
One unanswered question about the binary neutron star coalescence GW170817 is the nature of its post-merger remnant. A previous search for post-merger gravitational waves targeted high-frequency
Constraining the gravitational-wave afterglow from a binary neutron star coalescence
Binary neutron star mergers are rich laboratories for physics, accessible with ground-based interferometric gravitational-wave detectors such as the Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo. If a neutron
Overview of KAGRA: KAGRA science
KAGRA is a newly build gravitational wave observatory, a laser interferometer with 3 km arm length, located in Kamioka, Gifu, Japan. In this paper, one of a series of articles featuring KAGRA, we
Late-time radio observations of the short GRB 200522A: constraints on the magnetar model
GRB 200522A is a short duration gamma-ray burst (GRB) at redshift z=0.554 characterized by a bright infrared counterpart. A possible, although not unambiguous, interpretation of the observed emission
A long-lived neutron star merger remnant in GW170817: constraints and clues from X-ray observations
Multi-messenger observations of GW170817 have not conclusively established whether the merger remnant is a black hole (BH) or a neutron star (NS). We show that a long-lived magnetized NS with a
Merger of Compact Stars in the Two-families Scenario
We analyse the phenomenological implications of the two-families scenario on the merger of compact stars. That scenario is based on the coexistence of both hadronic stars and strange quark stars.
When Did the Remnant of GW170817 Collapse to a Black Hole?
The main hard pulse of prompt gamma-ray emission in GRB$\,$170817A had a duration of $\sim0.5\,{\rm s}$ and its onset was delayed with respect to the gravitational-wave chirp signal by $t_{\rm del}


Improved Constraints on H 0 from a Combined Analysis of Gravitational-wave and Electromagnetic Emission from GW170817
The luminosity distance measurement of GW170817 derived from GW analysis in Abbott et al. 2017 (here, A17:H0) is highly correlated with the measured inclination of the NS-NS system. To improve the

GW170817: Observation of Gravitational Waves from a Binary Neutron Star Inspiral.
The association of GRB 170817A, detected by Fermi-GBM 1.7 s after the coalescence, corroborates the hypothesis of a neutron star merger and provides the first direct evidence of a link between these mergers and short γ-ray bursts.
A gravitational-wave standard siren measurement of the Hubble constant
A measurement of the Hubble constant is reported that combines the distance to the source inferred purely from the gravitational-wave signal with the recession velocity inferred from measurements of the redshift using the electromagnetic data.
Illuminating gravitational waves: A concordant picture of photons from a neutron star merger
It is demonstrated that merging neutron stars are a long-sought production site forging heavy elements by r-process nucleosynthesis, which is dissimilar to classical short gamma-ray bursts with ultrarelativistic jets.
Brightening X-Ray Emission from GW170817/GRB 170817A: Further Evidence for an Outflow
The origin of the X-ray emission from neutron star coalescence GW170817/GRB 170817A is a key diagnostic of the unsettled post-merger narrative, and different scenarios predict distinct evolution in
Neutrino Signal of Collapse-Induced Thermonuclear Supernovae: The Case for Prompt Black Hole Formation in SN1987A
Collapse-induced thermonuclear explosion (CITE) may explain core-collapse supernovae (CCSNe). We present a preliminary analysis of the neutrino signal predicted by CITE and compare it to the neutrino
