Waveform Systematics and Binary Black Holes

November 19, 2021
Recorded 19 November 2021. Geraint Pratten of the University of Birmingham presents "Waveform Systematics and Binary Black Holes" at IPAM's Workshop III: Source inference and parameter estimation in Gravitational Wave Astronomy. Abstract: In this talk I will summarize the state-of-the-art for binary black hole waveform models. I will highlight recent progress in the field and discuss the key challenges that must be addressed in the coming years. Finally, I will highlight the impact of waveform systematics on the analysis of observed gravitational wave events and summarize our current understanding systematics. Learn more online at:
