Description

The joint observation of GW170817 and GRB 170817A has provided the long sought for conclusive evidence for the connection between binary neutron star mergers and short-hard gamma-ray bursts. Following an overview of the observation of GW170817 by the LIGO-Virgo Collaboration, and of the observations of GRB 170817A by Fermi-GBM and INTEGRAL SPI-ACS, this talk reviews the unambiguous association of GW170817 and GRB 170817A both within a Frequentist approach and a Bayesian approach.
