We point out that the gravitational-wave event GW150914 observed by the LIGO detectors can be explained by the coalescence of primordial black holes (PBHs). It is found that the expected PBH merger rate would exceed the rate estimated by the LIGO Scientific Collaboration and the Virgo Collaboration if PBHs were the dominant component of dark matter, while it can be made compatible if PBHs constitute a fraction of dark matter. Intriguingly, the abundance of PBHs required to explain the suggested…

GW200105 and GW200115 are compatible with a scenario of primordial black hole binary coalescences
Two gravitational wave events, i.e. GW200105 and GW200115, were observed by the Advanced LIGO and Virgo detectors recently. In this work, we show that they can be explained by a scenario of
Solving puzzles of GW150914 by primordial black holes
The black hole binary properties inferred from the LIGO gravitational wave signal GW150914 posed several serious problems. The high masses and low effective spin of black hole binary can be explained
Primordial black holes from Affleck-Dine mechanism
The recent observations of the gravitational waves (GWs) by LIGO-Virgo collaboration infer the increasing possibility of the primordial black holes (PBHs). Recently it was pointed out that sufficient
Rapid merger of binary primordial black holes: An implication for GW150914
We propose a new scenario for the evolution of a binary of primordial black holes (PBHs). We consider a dynamical friction by ambient dark matter, scattering of dark matter particles with a highly

It was shown by (Nakamura et al. 1997), (Ioka et al. 1998), and (Sasaki et al. 2016) that primordial black holes (PBHs) binaries can form effectively at the cosmological stage of radiation dominance,
Exploring Primordial Black Holes from the Multiverse with Optical Telescopes.
TLDR
It is demonstrated with numerical studies that future observations of HSC, as well as other optical surveys, will be able to provide a definitive test for this generic PBH formation mechanism if it is the dominant source of dark matter.
The astro-primordial black hole merger rates: a reappraisal
Mainly motivated by the recent GW190521 mass gap event which we take as a benchmark point, we critically assess if binaries made of a primordial black hole and a black hole of astrophysical origin
Gravitational Wave signatures of inflationary models from Primordial Black Hole Dark Matter
Primordial Black Holes (PBH) could be the cold dark matter of the universe. They could have arisen from large (order one) curvature fluctuations produced during inflation that reentered the horizon
Prospects for probing ultralight primordial black holes using the stochastic gravitational-wave background induced by primordial curvature perturbations
Ultralight primordial black holes (PBHs) with masses $\lesssim 10^{15}$g and subatomic Schwarzschild radii, produced in the early Universe, are expected to have evaporated by the current cosmic age

Did LIGO Detect Dark Matter?
TLDR
It is considered that the black-hole (BH) binary detected by LIGO may be a signature of dark matter, and reasonable estimates span a range that overlaps the 2-53  Gpc^{-3} yr^{-1} rate estimated from GW150914, thus raising the possibility that LigO has detected PBH dark matter.

Gravitational Waves from Coalescing Black Hole MACHO Binaries
If MACHOs are black holes of mass ~0.5 M☉, they must have been formed in the early universe when the temperature was ~1 GeV. We estimate that in this case in our Galaxy's halo out to ~ 50 kpc there
