Jonah - any updates on astrophysical waveforms. Michele - no new result, but where hrss is calculated in the script needs checking [it seems rather small - it would be nice if it was large ;)] Jonah - will check this over the next couple of week Michele - working out the efficiency of qpipeline + CorrPower. Trying to do this analytically. Can hopefully compare this with actual efficiencies. Hope to have more on this next week. Jonah - any update on H1H2 analysis Brennan - no, but have other stuff to report. Want to work out the tolerances of the efficiencies. Testing efficiences with of long wavelength approximation response function compared to full response function. In ful response function you get a complex number - this means that there is a phase shift associated with it. There are difference between H1 and H2 due to the arm length difference - seems to produce some parts of the sky with a 180 degree phase shift between them! This is only for frequencies above 3kHz. It kills ability to use the null stream at these frequencies i.e. above 3kHz. This might apply to coherent waveburst, so if this is confirmed we should let them know. Need more checking though. Jonah - this does depend on sky direction, so you can't correct for it Brennan - yes, this is the case Matt - Plotting scripts have been checked, only issue is the scale factors on the D1 and D4 waveform plots. Brennan will look at this. (I should try to run the plot scripts as well, but need to install root somewhere.) AOB We're going through the review summary table - Jonah will update this Matt - any new stuff in the paper that we should look over Brennan - nothing major, so we don't really need to re-read yet Michele - what going to happen after the Amsterdam LSC meeting with the paper - submit to arxiv, or just internal LSC, or burst, review. Brennan - calibration is still an issue and there is still the baseline paper to wait for, we definitely wont be going to arxiv Michele - more likely to be around the time of the December LSC meeting. What will the timeline of the full S5 paper. Jonah - don't really have an idea of the timescale - it uses new omega pipeline, but this shouldn't be too different than qpipeline. Hopefully there will be very little different, so it should be too much extra overhead. Should see if omega pipeline can reproduce qpipeline results Michele - where is the data for JW1 on CIT - can't find link. Also there's a page which requires password lots of times Jonah - yeah, you need to type the password several time as there are many plots linked from various pages. Michele - it works now :)
