Abstract

We analyze the data of the TAMA300 detector to search for gravitational waves from inspiraling compact star binaries with masses of the component stars in the range 1M-3M. In this analysis, 2705 hours of data, taken during the years 2000-2004, are used for the event search. We combine the results of different observation runs, and obtain a single upper limit on the rate of the coalescence of compact binaries in our Galaxy of 20 per year at a 90% confidence level. In this upper limit, the effects of various systematic errors such as the uncertainty of the background estimation and the calibration of the detector's sensitivity are included.
