Description

Gravitational-wave (GW) searches are impaired by the presence of transient sources of noise that can masquerade as a GW signal. This is particularly a burden when these events have larger amplitudes and hence generate an increase in the background for the loudest triggers. Requiring a coincidence between the output of the Virgo and LIGO detectors does not completely eliminate their effect. It is therefore necessary to suppress them in the Virgo GW channel trigger list. Many of these events are...[Show more]
