Learn more Gravitational-Wave Physics and Astronomy: An Introduction to Theory, Experiment and Data Analysis 1st EditionBrand: Wiley-Interscience. This book introduces much of the required theoretical background in gravitational physics, statistics and time series analysis before moving on to . Gravitational Wave Data Analysis. Authors: Schutz, B.F. had in and with many of the principal members of the various groups building prototype laser-interferometric gravitational wave detectors. It became clear that the proposals that these groups were planning to submit for large-scale detectors would have to address questions. Further sections cover gravitational wave detectors, data analysis, and the outlook of gravitational wave astronomy and astrophysics. Author Bios Jolien D. E. Creighton is an Associate Professor of Physics at the University of Wisconsin?Milwaukee and a member of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration, which he joined in
'This book serves as a unique contribution to the field of gravitational-wave data analysis and presents, in a single volume, the astrophysics behind signal production, a summary of important ideas in time-series analysis and statistical testing, and the necessity detector-response relations that allow one to construct a suitable analysis pipeline for gravitational-wave data from scratch.'Cited by: 5.

Request PDF | Analysis of Gravitational-Wave Data | Research in this field has grown considerably in recent years due to the commissioning of a world-wide network of large-scale detectors. This. The field of gravitational-wave data analysis has expanded greatly over the past decade and significant developments have been made in methods of analyzing the data taken by resonant bar and interferometric detectors, as well as analysis of mock LISA data. This book introduces much of the required theoretical background in gravitational physics.

Gravitational Wave Data Analysis. [B F Schutz] -- The articles in this book represent the major contributions at the NATO Advanced Research Workshop that was held from 6 to 9 July in the magnificent setting of Dyffryn House and Gardens, in St. This is a list of observed/candidate gravitational wave events. Direct observation of gravitational waves, which commenced with the detection of an event by LIGO in , constitutes part of gravitational wave has played a role in all subsequent detections to date, with Virgo joining in August Gravitational-wave astronomy is a branch of observational astronomy that uses gravitational waves to collect observational data about sources of detectable gravitational waves such as binary star systems composed of white dwarfs, neutron stars, and black holes; and events such as supernovae, and the formation of the early universe shortly after.
