LIGO Document G1601624-v1
- The first observing run (O1) of Advanced LIGO has now concluded. It yielded the first gravitational wave detections, with three potential binary black hole mergers GW150914, GW151226 and LVT151012. This talk reviews what we have learnt from O1, and what future discoveries gravitational-wave astronomy could produce. We look in detail at the measured properties of the black holes, and what how this could inform our understanding of their formation.
- For GRavitational-wave Astronomy Meeting in PAris (GRAMPA), 29 August–2 September 3016.
