[1001.2583] Unraveling Binary Evolution from Gravitational-Wave Signals and Source Statistics

Authors: Ilya Mandel, Vicky Kalogera, Richard O'Shaughnessy

Date: 14 Jan 2010

Abstract: The next generation of ground-based gravitational-wave detectors are likely to observe gravitational waves from the coalescences of compact-objects binaries. We describe the state of the art for predictions of the rate of compact-binary coalescences and report on initial efforts to develop a framework for converting gravitational-wave observations into improved constraints on astrophysical parameters.
