Abstract:
This research aims at assessing with software simulations the possibility of inferring the polarization content of gravitational waves (GWs) within a Bayesian framework. The response of a network of GW interferometric detectors will be studied in order to discriminate between different polarizations. Indeed, it is essential to quantify in advance how GW detector configuration choices affect our ability to measure the GW polarization content, as this measurement can place strong, fundamental constraints on theories of gravity.
