• Bayesave Analysis Study on Recovering Waveform Complexity through Reconstructions 

      Day, Brian M.
      The field of gravitational wave astronomy is a means of observing the universe in a new way. Crucial to the success of this new astronomy is analyzing the data obtained from the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave ...
    • Model Selection in Gravitational Wave Astronomy 

      Napier, Katherine
      The several detections of gravitational waves by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) and the Virgo detector are providing insights about the nature of gravity in our Universe [1]. As the number ...
    • Reduced Model for Gravitational Wave Sources 

      Maganazertuche, Lorena (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-08-18)
      One of the most interesting and exotic systems in the universe is a system of two black holes. When black holes orbit each other, they will eventually collide, forming a single black hole with a mass less than the sum of ...
    • Ultra-Close Tidal Disruption Events with Prompt Hyperaccretion 

      Evans, Christopher (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2015-08-18)
      A bright flare from a galactic nucleus followed at late times by a t^-5/3 decay in luminosity is often considered to be the signature of a tidal disruption of a star by a massive black hole. The flare and afterglow are ...
