Abstract:
The Advanced LIGO gravitational-wave detectors collected data from November 2016 through August 2017 in their second observing run (O2), and were joined by the Advanced Virgo detector during the final month. In addition to the well-known detection of several binary black hole mergers and the spectacular binary neutron star merger GW170817, the LIGO Scientific Collaboration (LSC) and Virgo Collaboration have completed a wide range of follow-on analyses as well as searches for other gravitational-wave signals. This poster will provide a big-picture overview of those analyses and highlight notable results. It will also tell where the full O2 data set is publicly available for use by other scientists, and set the stage for results to come from the in-progress O3 observing run.
