Gravitational-wave searches with Advanced LIGO and Virgo data: challenges and methods

Sarah Caudill
(Nikhef-Virgo)



The recent detections of gravitational waves from binary black hole mergers and a neutron star merger have ushered in the era of multi-messenger astronomy with gravitational waves. Using sophisticated data analysis techniques, these chirp signals were extracted from LIGO and Virgo detector data and clearly distinguished from non-Gaussian noise transients. The methods used by LIGO and Virgo analysis pipelines to find these modeled signals will be discussed. Additionally, techniques used in searches for other sources of gravitational waves including generic transient bursts and continuous signals will be highlighted.
