Minutes

  1. Announcements
    • No meeting next week (Memorial Day).
  2. Reports from S5 1st Year All-Sky Burst Review Teams
    • Q-Pipeline Review Team
      • Report of the Q-pipeline review committee (Kanner, Leonor, Reitze) [ TXT ]
      • Don't see any problems with the S5 1st year results. Needs to rerun with latest segment list. Several action items detailed in the report: mostly documentation, sanity checks, etc.
      • Lots of material in minutes. Some in Technical Documentation - needs to be cleaned up.
      • Need to check post-processing scripts. Use other people's coincidence scripts, etc.
      • Future: nice for MDC sets to include non-linearly polarized injections. Already have WNB ones.
      • First principles calculation of sensitivity.
      • Summary of what has been checked.
    • cWB Review Team
      • Coherent Waveburst Review Document for version 4.7.0 [ PDF ]
      • Code Review is complete.
      • Analysis Review: fairly advanced.
      • A bunch of questions being addressed. Document being written. A few bugs in post-processing scripts but nothing significant. 4 telecons until done.
      • Analytic calculation of sensitivity produced by Sergey.
      • Need to see how things change after Cat 3 DQ applied.
    • BNCP Review Team
      • Status: Been through source code. Data Conditioning. Reviewed Tuning. Not reviewed final results.
      • Code change in Dec/Jan set review back.
      • Probably 50% done the review process.
      • Post-processing scripts. Cross-check with the shell scripts that were used in S4. Check with Laura about running her scripts on datafiles.
      • Rerunning simulations. 50% done.
      • Reports needed.
      • Analytic estimation of sensitivity.
    • Reports would be nice if they were somewhat similar in structure. Michele will provide link to the cWB Analysis Report so that other teams can duplicate. Sometime next week.
  3. Discussion of review of S5 1st Year Burst Search Paper
    • Would like one person from each review team to join burst review committee meeting while reviewing the paper. Shourov prefers earlier or later. Perhaps reschedule meeting.
    • Each team should have someone attend these meetings.
    • Paper is taking form.
    • Triple and H1-H2 sets are upper limit. H1-L1 and H2-L2 are detection only.
    • Probably start seriously considering paper sometime around mid June. (After LSC meeting.)
