Experimental Particle and Astro-Particle Physics Seminar

Stefanos Leontsinis (Universitaet Zuerich (CH))

Abstract: A new astronomy started in 2015 with the first gravitational wave detection. Since then, LIGO-Virgo collaborations have confirmed several events originating from the coalescence of binary systems composed by compact objects. While for these type of events the wave signature is clear and well characterised, for other possible sources in the universe we lack a detailed model for e.g. Core Collapse Supernoave etc, so that it is necessary to adopt alternative approaches to discover novel sources through un-modelled searches. We overview one of these approaches extensively used in the search for gravitational wave in the LIGO-Virgo scientific runs, exploting its performances and possible applications.
