Abstract:
As an accompaniment to "GWTC-1: A Gravitational-Wave Transient Catalog of Compact Binary Mergers Observed by LIGO and Virgo during the First and Second Observing Runs", this page contains some supplementary associated data release of additional posterior samples detailing the inference on the compact binary coalescence observations presented in the above publication.

Specifically, it provides posterior samples for some BBH events described in GWTC-1, evaluated using NR and NR augmented by NRSur7dq2, under the assumptions each BH spin is aligned with the orbital angular momentum. Some of these analyses are performed using higher-order angular modes.

The file README_release.md describes the data format.
