GWTC-1: First LIGO/Virgo Gravitational-Wave Transient Catalog

Abstract: After the end of the O2 observing run, the LIGO and Virgo data were reprocessed and reanalyzed delivering the final O1 and O2 results. We will discuss the content of the catalog consisting of 10 BBH merger signals (4 of which are new discoveries) and one BNS merger signal (arXiv:1811.12907). We will also report the results of the companion article devoted to the astrophysical rates and parameters of the previously not known stellar-mass BH population (arXiv:1811.12940).
