Abstract

We report on a search for gravitational waves from coalescing compact binaries, of total mass between 2 and 35M<sub>⊙</sub>, using LIGO observations between November 14, 2006 and May 18, 2007. No gravitational-wave signals were detected. We report upper limits on the rate of compact binary coalescence as a function of total mass. The LIGO cumulative 90%-confidence rate upper limits of the binary coalescence of neutron stars, black holes and black hole-neutron star systems are 1.4×10<sup>-2</sup>, 7.3×10<sup>-4</sup> and 3.6×10<sup>-3</sup>  yr<sup>-1</sup> L<sub>10</sub><sup>-1</sup>, respectively, where L<sub>10</sub> is 1010 times the blue solar luminosity.
