LIGO Document G1700813-v5
- Gamma-ray bursts are the most luminous electromagnetic events in the universe. They fall into two, broad categories: long-duration bursts, which are powered by the core collapse of rapidly rotating massive stars, and short-duration bursts, for which binary neutron star and neutron star-black hole mergers are the leading progenitor candidates. In both scenarios, gravitational waves are expected to accompany the gamma-ray burst, making these transient phenomena promising events for gravitational-wave follow-up. In this talk, I present the results of the targeted searches for gravitational waves in association with gamma-ray bursts obtained during the first Advanced LIGO observing run, which was carried out between September 2015 and January 2016.
