Walk-through of Agenda Items

  1. Update on WB+CP efficiencies for resampled MDCs [ link to summary page ]
    • Heng: hrss50% points have increased by about 10% across-the-band.
    • Action item: (Heng) Changes to be compared to increases in LIGO-only analysis for consistency. This should be done for both cWB and WB+CP.
    • Riles: Is the change due to the fact that the detectors have better antenna response at high latitudes? Should be easy to check by Monte Carlo.
    • Action item: Sutton and Heng will try Monte Carlo.
    • Examined sigmoid fit curves for any problems; they look good. [ image of sigmoid fits on Laura's page ]
  2. Status of action items from previous telecons.
    • (Klimenko/Yakushin/Hughey) cWB efficiencies for resampled MDCs
      PENDING - Yakushin has new numbers; link to be sent today Yakushin will send today. Also updated figure 4 (old) / 3 (new).
    • (Sutton) Look at analytic sensitivity estimates
      PENDING
    • Paper modifications: Heng improved several figures and expanded figure captions, incorporated comments by Michele, included new detection efficiencies for Waveburst-CorrPower pipeline, included all injected sine-gaussian frequencies in table comparing detection efficiencies. Other items:
      • (Heng) Get a P-number for the paper, insert in acknowledgments.
        PENDING - number requested
      • (Heng) Revision of Section 2 to balance LIGO, GEO.
        PENDING - amount of technical detail on GEO reduced; changes to be vetted with GEO instrumentalists.
      • (Heng) Figure 1 is to be updated.
        PENDING - figure improved but need to choose colors for good black-and-white rendering. Also expanded caption to explain the choice of spectra.
      • (Heng) Figure 2 change to contour plot
        DONE - also caption expanded.
      • (Heng) Figure 3 to be improved or deleted.
        DONE - deleted.
      • (Heng) Replace eqn (8) by hrss.
        PENDING - Change made but in error: integrand should be h_+^2 + h_x^2
      • (Heng) Table 3 - all SGs added
        DONE - old table left in for comparison. Request feedback.
      • Fig 7 - added cWB hrss50% points. Riles: replace "efficiency" by "upper limit" or similar.
      • (Klimenko) Provide cWB reference.
        ABORTED - will reference LIGO technical note only.
      • (Klimenko) Revise section 3.2.
        PENDING
      • (Yakushin) Regenerate Figure 4.
        PENDING - to be done today.
