GWDAW-8 Abstract: Status and Plans for the LIGO-TAMA Joint Data Analysis

Patrick Sutton · Caltech · LIGO


The TAMA and LIGO collaborations have embarked on a joint analysis of the DT8-S2 data for gravitational-wave bursts. I will review the status and plans for this search, with emphasis on how the LIGO-TAMA working group is dealing with the novel challenges of a coincidence analysis for unmodelled sources involving four detectors with different antenna patterns and noise spectra.
