Gravity Gradients in LIGO: a proposal for Data Analysis
(Proceedings of the Tenth Marcel Grossman Meeting on General Relativity, 2006)
We propose a method to analyze seismic noise data to bound the influence of gravitational gradients affecting the sensitivity of gravitational wave detectors. We present results obtained with data taken at the LIGO Hanford ...
Causal Differencing in ADM and Conformal ADM Formulations: A Comparison in Spherical Symmetry.
(Physical Review D. Volume 62, 2000)
Black hole excision is at present the most promising approach to deal with the singularities in black hole spacetimes. The implementation of this technique is done through carefully designed algorithms that exploit the ...
Black Hole Spectroscopy: testing general relativity through gravitational-wave observations
(Classical and Quantum Gravity 21, 2004)
Assuming that general relativity is the correct theory of gravity in the strong field limit, can gravitational wave observations distinguish between black hole and other compact object sources? Alternatively, can gravitational ...
Numerical analysis of simplified Relic-Birefringent gravitational waves
(Classical and Quantum Gravity 24, 2004)
Some theories suggest that gravitational waves created in the early universe may be observable with future gravitational wave interferometers. As a result, identifying the characteristics of these gravitational waves and ...
