Abstract

This paper presents a parameter estimation analysis of the seven binary black hole mergers-GW170104, GW170608, GW170729, GW170809, GW170814, GW170818, and GW170823-detected during the second observing run of the Advanced LIGO and Virgo observatories using the gravitational-wave open data. We describe the methodology for parameter estimation of compact binaries using gravitational-wave data, and we present the posterior distributions of the inferred astrophysical parameters. We release our samples of the posterior probability density function with tutorials on using and replicating our results presented in this paper.
