Abstract:
Advanced LIGO has finished its first observing run and announced the first detection of gravitational waves. From the first observing run, there were three interesting events (GW150914, LVT151012 and GW151226) identified as binary black hole coalescences. I will explain how the parameters of these systems are inferred, and discuss the results from our first observing run.
