A New Pipeline To Analyze LIGO Data: Description And Results (GRITTS 4/8/2019)

Monday April 8, 2019 4:15 pm

Abstract:
We have developed a new pipeline to analyze LIGO strain data.┬áThe pipeline incorporates different techniques and makes independent implementation choices in all its stages including the search design, the method to construct template banks, the automatic routines to detect bad data segments (“glitches”) and to insulate good data from them, the procedure to account for the non-stationary nature of the detector noise, the signal-quality vetoes at the single-detector level and the methods to combine results from multiple detectors. I will describe the pipeline and the results of applying it to LIGO data.
