LIGO/Virgo S200116ah: Retraction of GW compact binary merger candidate
2020-01-16T12:28:22Z (4 years ago)
Erik Katsavounidis at MIT <>
The LIGO Scientific Collaboration and the Virgo Collaboration report:

The trigger S200116ah is no longer considered to be a candidate of

interest. The candidate is attributed to non-stationary noise in the L1

detector and is not significant without the contribution from L1.
