Title: "Testing General Relativity with GWTC-3"
Abstract: With the most recent gravitational wave transient catalog GWTC-3, the LIGO/Virgo detectors have detected about 90 compact binary mergers, including binary black holes, binary neutron stars, and neutron star--black hole pairs. Among the 90 events, 35 compact binary mergers from the second half of the third observing run (O3b) were reported for the first time (arxiv.org/abs/2111.03606). In this webinar we discuss the results from our recent paper (arxiv.org/abs/2112.06861) where we combined the new observational data with the older data to seek possible departures from GR.
