LIGO Document P0900009-v11
- We report on a search for gravitational waves from coalescing compact binaries, of total mass between 2
and 35 Msun, using LIGO observations between November 14, 2006 and May 18, 2007. No gravitational-wave
signals were detected. We report upper limits on the rate of compact binary coalescence as a function of total
mass. The LIGO cumulative 90%-confidence rate upper limits of the binary coalescence of neutron stars, black
holes and black hole-neutron star systems are 1.4 × 10^−2, 7.3 × 10^−4and 3.6 × 10^−3 yr−1L_10^-1 respectively,
where L_10 is 10^10 times the blue solar luminosity.
