Hot subdwarfs from the ESO Supernova Ia Progenitor Survey: II. Atmospheric parameters of subdwarf O stars
We address the origin and evolutionary status of hot subdwarf stars by studying the optical spectral properties of 58 subdwarf O (sdO) stars. Combining them with the results of our previously studiedExpand

The LISA verification binaries
The Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) guarantees the detection of gravitational waves by monitoring a handful of known nearby galactic binary systems, the so-called verification binaries. WeExpand

Testing gravitational-wave searches with numerical relativity waveforms: Results from the first Numerical INJection Analysis (NINJA) project
The Numerical INJection Analysis (NINJA) project is a collaborative effort between members of the numerical relativity and gravitational-wave data analysis communities. The purpose of NINJA is toExpand

Gravitational-Wave Astronomy with Inspiral Signals of Spinning Compact-Object Binaries
Inspiral signals from binary compact objects (black holes and neutron stars) are primary targets of the ongoing searches by ground-based gravitational-wave interferometers (LIGO, Virgo, and GEO-600).Expand

Inference on inspiral signals using LISA MLDC data
In this paper, we describe a Bayesian inference framework for the analysis of data obtained by LISA. We set up a model for binary inspiral signals as defined for the Mock LISA Data Challenge 1.2Expand

Methods for detection and characterization of signals in noisy data with the Hilbert-Huang Transform
TLDR
We show that complementing the Hilbert-Huang transform with techniques such as zero-phase filtering, kernel density estimation and Fourier analysis allows it to be used effectively to detect and characterize signals with low signal-to-noise ratios. Expand

Comparison of signals from gravitational wave detectors with instantaneous time–frequency maps
Gravitational wave astronomy relies on the use of multiple detectors, so that coincident detections may distinguish real signals from instrumental artifacts, and also so that relative timing ofExpand

Searching for Gravitational Waves with the Hilbert-Huang Transform
TLDR
Gravitational waves are a consequence of Einstein's theory of general relativity applied to the motion of very dense and massive objects such as black holes and neutron stars. Expand

Status of NINJA: the Numerical INJection Analysis project
The 2008 NRDA conference introduced the Numerical INJection Analysis project (NINJA), a new collaborative effort between the numerical relativity community and the data analysis community. NINJAExpand

LISA astronomy of double white dwarf binary systems
The Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) will provide us with the largest observational sample of (interacting) double white dwarf binaries, whose evolution is driven by the radiation reactionExpand
