Minutes

  1. Announcements: Change of agenda - S4 LIGO-GEO is not yet ready for final approval.
  2. Reports from Burst Review Teams
  3. Update on S4 LIGO-GEO burst search paper [ PDF ] (CVS version).
    • Incoherent WB run on wrong segment lists. First ten days were supposed to be dropped but weren't.
    • Bug in post-processing script: consistency test for sign/amplitude cuts for H1 and H2. Supposed to be an AND but really an OR. More than half background triggers that should have been dropped weren't.
    • Should re-tune? Not for advertised efficiency curves (based on closed-box tuning) but perhaps for a more meaningful comparison to cWB.
    • May not be possible to send to Exec Committee next week.
  4. Review of BurstMDC Simulation
    • BurstMDC Bulletin Board [ HTML ]
      • Reviewed: randomskyangle.m
      • Reviewed: file2structarray.m
        • Data and column heading must be space delimited. Header is the last comment line before the first non comment line. No way to have a blank column between non blank ones.
        • File not found gives warning. Should be an error?
    • A.O.B.
      • Galactic core search? No green-light for review team yet. Key question is whether it has better sensitivity as all-sky search.
      • S5 1-year all-sky search reviewing schedule.
        • Draft with results from all three pipelines. Upper limit a la Sutton. Still some data sets to open box.
        • Present paper at LSC meeting. Readable doc in around 2 wks.
        • Review teams should be concluding sometime after LSC meeting.
        • Bring review teams together at this meeting in 2 wks time. Need to figure out how to structure the union of these reviews.
        • Timescale for re-run of simulations is also around 2 weeks.
