GWDAW-8 Abstract: A time-domain veto for binary inspirals search

Gianluca M. Guidi · Universita' di Urbino · VIRGO


We describe a test to distinguish between actual gravitational waves from binary inspiral and false noise triggers. The test operates in the time domain and considers the time evolution of the correlator and its statistical distribution. It should distinguish true events vs noise with the same Signal to Noise Ratio and Chi Square frequency distribution. The test has been applied to LIGO data.
