  • Aufmuth, Peter; Danzmann, Karsten (Bristol : Institute of Physics Publishing, 2005)
    The existence of gravitational radiation is a prediction of Einstein's general theory of relativity. Gravitational waves are perturbations in the curvature of spacetime caused by accelerated masses. Since the 1960s ...
  • Abbott, B.P.; Abbott, R.; Abbott, T.D.; Acernese, F.; Ackley, K.; et al.; LIGO Scientific Collaboration; Virgo Collaboration (College Park, MD : American Physical Society, 2017)
    We describe the observation of GW170104, a gravitational-wave signal produced by the coalescence of a pair of stellar-mass black holes. The signal was measured on January 4, 2017 at 10 11:58.6 UTC by the twin advanced ...
  • Danzmann, Karsten (Trieste : International School for Advanced Studies, 2009)
    Gravitational waves have been predicted by Albert Einstein more than 90 years ago as a consequence of his theory of general relativity. Several km-size gravitational wave detectors have now gone into operation on the ground ...
  • Abbott, B.P.; Abbott, R.; Abbott, T.D.; Abernathy, M.R.; Acernese, F.; et al.; LIGO Scientific Collaboration; Virgo Collaboration (College Park, MD : American Physical Society, 2016)
    On September 14, 2015 at 09:50:45 UTC the two detectors of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory simultaneously observed a transient gravitational-wave signal. The signal sweeps upwards in frequency from ...

    On September 14, 2015, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) detected a gravitational-wave transient (GW150914); we characterize the properties of the source and its parameters. The data around the ...
