Yes I know that GRP4 search progress gonna end, good luck FGRP4 Series :)

And,a new series of tasks is prepared to be send I suppose, yes, but I want to know from where come this series, from: LIGO,GEO600,VIRGO,PARKES or the big one ARECIBO...??

Or is a re-sifting of specified series??

What are gonna seek in this tasks, which is the purpose of this series, Pulsars, neutron Stars, Gravitational Waves ehm ehm :))?

And the most important,and I want to know is, HOW...that is, how is the cientific method to find it...

Sorry but I´m very curious and this is very fascinating.

A huge greeting

You may wish to review the very first post in the Technical News thread on this work.

Yes, but it has been replaced with FGRPB1 which is quite interesting because it's a search for gamma-ray pulsars in binary systems.

Depends precisely what you are talking about. If you are talking about detecting GW (as we suspect you are) that's nothing to do with radio emissions picked up by Arecibo and Parkes. Nothing to do with any current GPU searches. Here is a list of data sources for current searches.

BRP4 - data comes from Arecibo radio telescope

BRP6 - data comes from Australia's Parkes radio telescope - a southern hemisphere view of the cosmos.

FGRP4 and FGRPB1 - data comes from NASA's Fermi satellite - for pulsars that emit gamma rays.

O1AS20-100T - advanced LIGO data from the two advanced LIGO detectors at Livingston and Hanford - the very detectors that found the cataclysmic BH-BH merger 1.3 billion light years away/ago :-). That was found in pre-O1 data. We are using the official O1 data and are not really looking for cataclysmic events but the much more difficult and (especially now) much more exciting continuous GW emissions from much more mundane events like 'millimeter mountains' (if they exist) on spinning neutron stars. There will be real excitement if/when some of those are detected. Just imagine the bragging rights if you could say that your computer discovered the GW emission from a millimeter mountain!! :-).

Absolutely NOT!!! What heresy to even suggest such a thing!!! :-).

Go to the home page and read some of the linked information there. This has been going on for 11 years and the algorithms to detect the elusive signals have been progressively improved over that time. The big difference now is that we have data that is potentially 3x to 10x more sensitive than previously. That's what advanced LIGO is all about.

Happy hunting!! :-).

Cheers,
Gary.

Perfect, understood, thanks

Perfect, understood, thanks Gary...Very excited to start this new data series from the BIG Advanced LIGO :)
