Minutes

  1. Announcements
    • Jolien will be away for three weeks. Cancel meeting on 11 August. Patrick will run meeting on the 28th if there is any business to deal with. Fate of other meeting is uncertain.
  2. Dicussion of final draft of 1st Year S5-SGR paper.
    • Figure needs to be fixed: diamonds missing.
    • On-source data issue needs to be reviewed.
    • Review committee gives blessing to circulate the paper to the LSC for the final cooling off period prior to submission.
  3. Update on status of S5 1st Year Burst Search Paper [ HTML ]
    • Paper has been updated but sections are still missing. Looks like it is not quite ready to review carefully. Take up reviewing schedule off-line.
  4. Reports from Burst Review Teams
    • Skeleton of report for BN is in place. Badri will begin drafting the report.
  5. Review of BurstMDC Simulation
    • BurstMDC Bulletin Board [ HTML ]
      • Eric's method for waveform interpolation [ HTML ]
        • Possible bug: depends on whether the number of samples are divisible by two.
        • Possible fractionalshift -- not clear that this is in fact better: what about the sampling theorem? Perhaps these WNB are not properly gaussian-enveloped.
        • Look at off line before taking it up again.
      • S5y2 decision on MDC set [ HTML ]
    • Review of graven.m
      • Reviewed calibsim_h2h -- Note: this is in SECOND year analysis, not first year (need to account for systematics in calibration).
        • Request for similar funcitons for non-LIGO detectors, but not clear how to do this. Just scale in this case.
        • Padding: off by one "error"?
        • Question about causality of filter.
  6. A.O.B.
    • LIGO-GEO was posted on archive last week.
