Agenda and minutes of the weekly LIGO-GEO S4 Bursts Review telecon, held Wednesdays at 10:00 Eastern time.

Agenda and Contact Info


  1. Updates on outstanding action items.
    • Igor generated new simulation trigger lists and cross-check efficiency tables for the incoherent pipeline. Laura produced new efficiency curves for the incoherent pipeline. Both the WB+CP efficiencies are in agreement with each other. The results are posted [ here ]
    • Igor produced the live time table for all lags for the final WB+CP segments.
  2. Status of the paper. [ HEAD version ]
    • new trigger lists (background and zero lag) for the WB+CP analysis should be produced (Siong,Laura)
    • script for production of trigger lists should be posted (Siong)
    • script for application of the CP PP cuts should be posted (Siong)
    • redo Figure 4 with the correct live time calculated by Igor (Siong) publish live time table
    • redo Figure 3 (Siong). Ascii file with data points has been distributed by Igor.
    • review text in section 5.1 for discrepancies (Siong, Sergey)
    • Figure 5 is Final
    • redo Figure 7 (Siong, Igor)
    • redo Figure 8 (Siong)
    • Table 2 is Final
    • produce Q-scans of 2 outliers with Zg>8
  3. proposed time table to finalize the paper
    • complete all suggested changes and present the paper to the LG review on May 9-10.
    • discuss the paper during the s4-ligogeo review call on May 14
    • present paper to the burst review on May 19
