Burst Group External Collaboration Overview

Overview of Active or Possible External Collaboration

Name of external person(s), group, or scientific collaboration:

LVD (Large Volume Detector)

Brief description of collaborative activity (one sentence):

Get times of neutrino events for correlated analysis with GW transients.

Contact person(s) in the LSC+Virgo collaborations:

Eugenio Coccia, Erik Katsavounidis

External contact person(s):

Walter Fulgione

How does/would this collaborative activity benefit the LSC and Virgo?

Provide GC neutrino candidate event times for potential GW detection.

Are there other individuals/groups who could provide similar benefits?

Super-K, IceCube, KamLAND. If so, what is the scientific and/or practical justification for pursuing this particular collaboration?
Good galactic coverage

Are any joint proposals planned to be submitted, e.g. for funding or for telescope time?

tbd

Describe any paper(s) which will/might result from this collaboration

Search for GW bursts associated with gravitational collapse neutrino candidates.

What preliminary studies (if any) have been done or are currently being done?

Flat time-coincidence analysis with time-shifts to assess background. Studies to quantify increased detection chance and ability to extract core-collapse waveform models.
