Contact Info

On EVO use "bersten" to get in, or phone bridge ID 39354 and "6519" to get in.


  1. S5y2/VSR1 all-sky paper
    • Shawhan plotted "linear" ringdown waveforms, and they have only the cross polarizations non-zero. And "circular" has cos, but first quarter cycle is forced to be zero.
    • Salemi gives link to Virgo MDC. It has cos iota, but it was really left out and done as in paper. Zero quarter cycle for "circular" is to avoid discontinuity and consequent energy wackiness.
    • Owen: which psi was used? Klimenko: GravEn now uses Thorne (1987). Katsavounidis: T040020-01.pdf gives all details.
    • Last week's issue of can we convert efficiencies w/polarizations, networks, etc: No real progress from Owen or Stuver.
  2. S5y2/VSR1 all-sky analyses
    • End times: Salemi has an H1H2 segment up to 10:25 after S5. Bizouard has up to 05:00 or so. Data should be OK, science mode, passing cuts, etc. But Owen wants confirmation from experimenters and management.
    • CWB report: No Sutton.
