GWDAW-8 Abstract: TFCLUSTERS: detection efficiency and parameter estimation accuracy

Julien Sylvestre · Caltech · LIGO


A progress report on the tuning of the TFCLUSTERS burst detection algorithm for the LIGO S2 Science run is presented, together with a discussion of the most recent improvements to the algorithm. Measured detection efficiencies are presented, as well as measured accuracies for the estimation of the most important parameters of the events for the purpose of performing a coincidence analysis between multiple interferometers.
