Abstract:
One of the great promises of the Advanced LIGO era is the prospect of
integrating gravitational wave astronomy into the greater astronomical
community. This will allow for measurements that cross spectral bands
and provide new paths for insight into some of the most energetic
processes in the universe. In this talk I'll discuss past and present
efforts with Initial and Enhanced LIGO to search for transients with
both electromagnetic and gravitational wave signatures, with special
focus on electromagnetic followups of inspiral events and an eye
towards the advanced detector era.
