Abstract:
An important feature of low-latency searches for gravitational waves is the
ability to quickly identify the sky location of possible sources. This then
allows for on-the-fly searches for possible electromagnetic counterparts by
pointing telescopes. Here we will discuss a method of
localizing inspiral sources using time of arrival data from both LIGO
detectors and VIRGO and how well we can expect this method to perform based
on the analysis of simulated signals. P
