We report on the newly increased event rates due to the recent discovery of the highly relativistic binary pulsar J07373039. Using a rigorous statistical method, we present the calculations reported by Burgay et al., which produce a coalescence rate for Galactic double neutron star (DNS) systems that is higher by a factor of 6–7 compared to estimates made prior to the new discovery. Our method takes into account known pulsar survey selection effects and biases due to small-number statistics… 
The probability distribution of binary pulsar coalescence rates. II. Neutron star-white dwarf binaries
We consider the statistics of pulsar binaries with white dwarf companions (NS-WD). Using the statistical analysis method developed by Kim and coworkers, we calculate the Galactic coalescence rate of
Expected Coalescence Rates of Ns-Ns Binaries for Laser Beam Interferometers
The coalescence rate of two neutron stars (NS) is revisited. To estimate the number of bound NS-NS and the probability of their coalescence in a time scale τ, the galactic star formation history,
COMPACT OBJECT COALESCENCE RATE ESTIMATION FROM SHORT GAMMA-RAY BURST OBSERVATIONS
Recent observational and theoretical results suggest that short-duration gamma-ray bursts (SGRBs) originate from the merger of compact binary systems of two neutron stars or a neutron star and a
Predictions for the rates of compact binary coalescences observable by ground-based gravitational-wave detectors
We present an up-to-date, comprehensive summary of the rates for all types of compact binary coalescence sources detectable by the initial and advanced versions of the ground-based gravitational-wave
Compact binaries in star clusters – II. Escapers and detection rates
We use a self-consistent Monte Carlo treatment of stellar dynamics to investigate black hole binaries that are dynamically ejected from globular clusters to determine if they will be gravitational
Impact of star formation inhomogeneities on merger rates and interpretation of LIGO results
Within the next decade, ground based gravitational-wave detectors are in principle capable of determining the compact object merger rate per unit volume of the local universe to better than 20% with
The Double-Neutron-Star Inspiral Rate and Expectations for Gravitational-Wave Detection
We present the most up-to-date inspiral rate estimates of double-neutron-star (DNS) systems in our Galaxy. We find that the DNS inspiral rate (R) is most likely to be ~83 Myr−1 for our reference
On the formation history of Galactic double neutron stars
Double neutron stars (DNSs) have been observed as Galactic radio pulsars, and the recent discovery of gravitational waves from the DNS merger GW170817 adds to the known DNS population. We perform
RELATIVISTIC BINARY PULSARS WITH BLACK HOLE COMPANIONS
Binaries containing a stellar mass black hole and a recycled radio pulsar have so far eluded detection. We present a focused investigation of the formation and evolution of these systems in the

TLDR
This work reports the discovery of a 22-ms pulsar, PSR J0737–3039, which is a member of a highly relativistic double-neutron-star binary with an orbital period of 2.4 hours, which implies an order-of-magnitude increase in the predicted merger rate for double- NEUTron- star systems in the authors' Galaxy (and in the rest of the Universe).
