Abstract

This work incorporates a review of the status, in Australia, of data analysis for gravitational wave detection using laser interferometers, within an overview of the present state of such research in the world generally. In this context, data analysis refers not so much to signal simulation as to what might be called the thorough process of noise characterization and the subsequent, quality-controlled signal extraction. To the extent that problems identified here arise for all currently planned instruments, there is necessarily a global component to the discussion presented. In Australia, there are unique circumstances, associated with attempting to carry out work in gravitational wave detection, which demand also a local aspect to the ensuing discussion.
