Minutes

  1. Announcements
    • Update on calibration: Calibration team's priority is to get FD V4 in 1-3 wks timeframe; they'll do that then be more available to track down differences. HF search is only slightly dependent on phase errors.
    • Proposal: for HF search, use V3 data but take ampl difference in the V3 and V4 FD calibration functions as a systematic uncertainty. (Ignore phase errors since these are not so important.)
    • Hopefully S4CS search will be ready to present to collaboration by December LSC meeting.
  2. Update on status of S5 1st Year Burst Search Paper [ HTML ]
    • Reminder: target to start review is start of November.
    • Still optimistic about having the review of this search (and the HF search) ready for December LSC meeting.
  3. Reports from Burst Review Teams
    • X-Pipeline: steady but slow progress... unlikely to be done by LSC meeting.
    • Norna: Goal is for BN report should be done in the next week.
  4. Discussion of equinox event review document [ PDF ]
    • Q-Pipeline: plots on page 10. Higher threshold on H1H2 events than H1H2L1. Otherwise, plots do have overlapping times.
    • Clusters of points in right plot? No down-selection of triggers before coincidence.
    • Does not necessarily need to be a change -- just an understanding.
    • Proposal: together with burst group, propose to the dac that the equinox report should be forwarded to the detection committee as a living document.
  5. Review of BurstMDC Simulation
    • Will contact Amber so we can pick this up in the future.
  6. A.O.B.
    • Omega pipeline review: are there enough reviewers? Jolien: I think this team is OK, but won't be able to get started until after the Q-Pipeline review is complete (after LSC meeting). Eric should feel free to participate in Q-Pipeline review to get a feel for the code that Omega is derived from.
