LIGO Document T2100276-v1
- With the detection of many individual gravitational wave signals, re-searchers have begun searching for a stochastic gravitational wave background. This superposition of weak, unresolved gravitational wave signals could hold a wealth of astrophysical and cosmological information.Studying the background with current detector sensitives could provide ameasure of matter distributions in the universe. Eventually these searches could provide concrete evidence of inflation and act as a primordial CMB.This project will focus on developing time series data folding for the stochastic gravitational wave background analysis pipeline. With theimplementation of data folding, anisotropic directional searches can becarried out far more efficiently. This proposal will detail the underlyingphysics and overall direction of the project.
