Agenda and Minutes, 10 October 2006

Agenda: Tues, 10 October 2006

The agenda is to give a final reading of the radiometer paper. See

Committee Member Reports:
- Nelson - equations check out.
- Stuart - LMXB results almost check out - const 382 vs 440 for eq (17)
- Robert - bookkeeping almost complete, 3 bins missing for a few pulsars,
  tracking it down, differences in amount of data run on different clusters
  for different spectra, up to 3%. MIT data is gone, so detailed check can't
  be done.

Review of paper:
- Quote frequency band for general result and for SCO-X1 result in abstract.
- Drop the Dirac delta from Eq. (1).
- Mention 60 Hz harmonic and pulsar injection notches at end of section II.
- Sexier title for section III (presumably with corresponding changes to 
  title of section IV.
- Comment on why pulsar injection #4 is not recovered quite correctly (move 
  associated investigations to higher priority).
- Add a sentence on difference in segments cut by post-processing between 
  beta=0 and beta=-3 at end of section III.
- Add beta=-3 point spread graphs to figure 3.
- Reformulate statement that results are insensitive to upper cutoff for 
  prior.
- Add a statement of what the physics of beta=-3 is to beginning of section 
  IV-A-1.
- Look for a way to include LXMB analysis for VIRGO that is less 
  negative/controversial in section IV A.
- Drop extrapolation to S2 for SCO-X1 result.
- Check that all references are used.

Hi Stefan,

Here are the items I have from today's telecon:

1)  Quote frequency band for general result and for SCO-X1 result in abstract.
2)  Drop the Dirac delta from Eq. (1).
3)  Mention 60 Hz harmonic and pulsar injection notches at end of section II.
4)  Sexier title for section III (presumably with corresponding changes to 
    title of section IV.
5)  Comment on why pulsar injection #4 is not recovered quite correctly (move 
    associated investigations to higher priority).
6)  Add a sentence on difference in segments cut by post-processing between 
    beta=0 and beta=-3 at end of section III.
7)  Add beta=-3 point spread graphs to figure 3.
8)  Reformulate statement that results are insensitive to upper cutoff for 
    prior.
9)  Add a statement of what the physics of beta=-3 is to beginning of section 
    IV-A-1.
10) Look for a way to include LXMB analysis for VIRGO that is less 
    negative/controversial in section IV A.
11) Drop extrapolation to S2 for SCO-X1 result.
12) Check that all references are used.
