Minutes

  1. Announcements
  2. Discussion of the S5 1st Year Burst Search Paper [ HTML ]
    • Please read paper and send comments to burst group.
  3. Reports from Burst Review Teams
    • Report from the S5y1 Q-Pipeline review team. [ PDF, PPT ]
      • Single detector search whitens but H1H2 search overwhitens... why different?
      • Documentation doesn't reflect what is actually done. Needs to be cleaned up.
      • Correlated and coherent energy computed. Cut is place on correlated energy.
      • Question about calibration systematic errors affecting the null-stream, leaving a signal that might affect result. Shourov designed system to handle 20% calibration uncertainties. Need to do MDC studies of calibration uncertainties. On the review TODO. Keith thorne has MDC sets with mis-calibrated simulations.
      • Coincidence window of 10 ms compared to 100 ms ... almost no difference in number of missed injections.
      • Post-processing scripts were checked. Scripts should be in the CVS and tagged.
      • Sensitivity estimate to within ~20%. Predicted is always better than actual. Double-median effect?
      • Review document to be written.
      • Livetime calculation. Post-processing scripts do bookkeeping, but reality check hasn't been done. This would be straightforward to check.
      • Recommend approval pending notes above.
    • Report from the High-Frequency S5y1 Q-Pipeline review team. [PDF slides] [Review document]
      • Like LF search but no H1H2 null veto; use of corrpower.
      • Astrophysical waveforms were used. Conditioning of these was checked.
      • Sensitivity estimate and livetime checked.
      • Bug in corrpower found last week. Redo analysis but no changes.
      • Recommend approval pending updated figures, calibration study.
      • Read paper and send comments to burst group.
