GWTC-2.1: Deep Extended Catalog of Compact Binary Coalescences Observed by LIGO and Virgo During the First Half of the Third Observing Run - Candidate Data Release


Data associated with candidates in GWTC-2.1. These are gravitational-wave candidates from the first half of the third observing run (O3a) of the Advanced LIGO and Virgo detectors that pass a false alarm rate threshold of 2/day. We upload a tar file (search_data_GWTC2p1.tar.gz) containing all the data and a python notebook (search_data.ipynb) which provides description on how to use the files contained in the dataset.


LIGO Laboratory and Advanced LIGO are funded by the United States National Science Foundation (NSF) as well as the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) of the United Kingdom, the Max-Planck-Society (MPS), and the State of Niedersachsen/Germany for support of the construction of Advanced LIGO and construction and operation of the GEO600 detector. Additional support for Advanced LIGO was provided by the Australian Research Council. Virgo is funded, through the European Gravitational Observatory (EGO), by the French Centre National de Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), the Italian Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN) and the Dutch Nikhef, with contributions by institutions from Belgium, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Japan, Monaco, Poland, Portugal, Spain.
