Search for advanced LIGO single interferometer compact binary coalescence signals in coincidence with Gamma-ray events in Fermi-GBM

Abstract: (IOP) Presented is the description of a new and general method used to search for γ-ray counterparts to gravitational-wave (GW) triggers. This method is specifically applied to single GW…
