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 8.7×10^(-3)  yr^(-1) L_(10)^(-1), 2.2×10^(-3)  yr^(-1) L_(10)^(-1), and 4.4×10^(-4)  yr^(-1) L_(10)^(-1), respectively, where L_(10) is 10^(10) times the blue solar luminosity. These upper limits are compared with astrophysical expectations.
