26 February 2003 Analysis techniques for data from resonant-mass detectors
Author Affiliations +
Resonant detectors of gravitational waves (g.w) have been operating for many years. These detectors allow to investigate various classes of signals, such as bursts, continuous waves, stochastic background. We will describe here some of the data analysis tools we have developed. In particular we will outline the problem of optimal filtering of the data, given the fact that the sensitivity of the detector is time varying, and some of the problems that arise when performing a coincidence analysis; we will describe some tools developed to look for signals from periodic sources, with a particular emphasis on the all-sky search we are running on the data of Explorer; we will describe the technique used to perform coincidences with Gamma Ray Bursts.
