Search for Gravitational Waves Associated with Gamma-Ray Bursts Detected by Fermi and Swift During the LIGO-Virgo Run O3b

We search for gravitational-wave signals associated with gamma-ray bursts detected by the Fermi and Swift satellites during the second half of the third observing run of Advanced LIGO and Advanced…

GWTC-3: Compact Binary Coalescences Observed by LIGO and Virgo During the Second Part of the Third Observing Run

The LIGO and Virgo detectors have observed 35 new gravitational-wave events, between November 2019 and March 2020, during the second half of the third observing run (O3b). The total number…

Constraints on cosmic strings using data from the third Advanced LIGO-Virgo observing run

Abstract: (APS) We search for gravitational-wave signals produced by cosmic strings in the Advanced LIGO and Virgo full O3 dataset. Search results are presented for gravitational waves produced by cosmic…
