Agenda: Tues, 19 June 2007
On our plate for tomorrow is the review of the stochastic talks and posters for Amaldi. So far, there have been a talk and a poster made available. I've linked the both to the review web page at: http://www.lsc-group.phys.uwm.edu/sbwg/docs/downloads.html Username is lsc, password is the standard cheering password. John Whelan will be giving a poster on the LLO-Allegro paper. He has asked for an extension, and since that work has been so well reviewed, I thought it would be ok to let him have more time. I believe Nick Fotopoulos wanted to give a talk on H1-H2 correlation removal, which has the potential to be somewhat more contentious, but I've heard nothing from him about his talk.
Attending: Stuart, Nelson, Harry, Warren, Robert Bernard Whiting's Poster - no data has been analyzed, title data->network. GEO should be mentioned. - fewer graphs and more text might be better - motivation and conclusions. Nelson thinks a good case should make a case for an extra interferometer giving sqrt N improvement. - On Fig.s, LLO-Virgo and LHO-Virgo curves indistinguishable.. - Stating approx. Freq band would be helpful. - Better to have non-abbreviated IFO names in Fig. Captions. - Should probably be V1 instead of V2. - Fig. 2 curves are illegible. Might be a good one to delete. - Where does data for Fig.s 1-3 come from? Design? S5 levels? - For Fig. 4: What is data (design)? Upper limit on what? What are units of upper limit? What is observation time? Has this been presented before? Curves that are from real data should be removed. - Nelson thinks that it is difficult to understand what Fig. 5 means without an equation. What does it mean to be an "integrand" for three instruments. - Caption of Fig 6 talks about improvements to network by including Virgo, but network without Virgo (H-L-G) is not compared to HLGV. - Astrophysical typo. - Reference for magnetars, some description of why they are being focussed on. Need some motivational statements like "Virgo will help most with sources at high frequencies - are there any?" - Statement that Magnetars are exotic? - Looks to us like GEO might be getting short-shrift. - Some statement that this is exploratory needed. Bottom line is that Fig. 4 must be removed if it is using real data or significantly altered if it is not, and GEO should be treated more fairly. Since we ran out of time, we will have another session tomorrow, same time.
