In the last decade, the use of neural networks (NN) and of other soft computing methods has begun to spread also in the astronomical community which, due to the required accuracy of the measurements, is usually reluctant to use automatic tools to perform even the most common tasks of data reduction and data mining. The federation of heterogeneous large… (More)
Independent component analysis (ICA) is used to analyze the seismic signals produced by explosions of the Stromboli volcano. It has been experimentally proved that it is possible to extract the most significant components from seismometer recorders. In particular, the signal, eventually thought as generated by the source, is corresponding to the higher… (More)
In this paper a hierarchical Neural Network-based approach is presented to identify the noise in the Virgo experiment to detect Gravitational Waves by means of a laser interferometer.
