Abstract

We report the results of the first search for gravitational waves from compact binary coalescence using data from the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory and Virgo detectors. Five months of data were collected during the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory’s S5 and Virgo’s VSR1 science runs. The search focused on signals from binary mergers with a total mass between 2 and 35M. No gravitational waves are identified. The cumulative 90%-confidence upper limits on the rate of compact binary coalescence are calculated for nonspinning binary neutron stars, black hole-neutron star systems, and binary black holes to be 8.7x10^-3 yr^-1 L10^-1 , 2.2 x 10^-3 yr^-1 L10^-1 , and 4.4 x 10^-4 yr^-1 L10^-1 , respectively, where L10 is 10^10 times the blue solar luminosity. These upper limits are compared with astrophysical expectations.
