Abstract:
The Advanced LIGO detectors are being installed and are already reaching unprecedented levels of sensitivity. The new detectors will eventually be 10 times more sensitive than the initial LIGO detectors which will guarantee gravitational wave detections provided that the predictions of General Relativity and astrophysical population models are correct. To prepare for the new kind of astronomy that will be done with gravitational waves, the Andrews University LIGO group is helping to develop methods for estimating the parameters of gravitational waveforms from detector data.
