It seems that I have been getting new papers out faster than I could blog about them, so let me catch up with this post. The first is a LIGO paper, the second may be my last LISA paper for a while, and the third is about the statistical theory of extracting information from gravitational-wave signals. All three will be published in 2013, and all three are... good stuff.
An excerpt from the Sep 24, 2012 performance of Andrea Centazzo and Michele's "Einstein's Cosmic Messengers", presented at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory to my fellow NASA scientists and engineers. The video includes my introduction and one of the music segments. See on video page.
I wanted to celebrate my birthday by posting a new preprint on the arXiv, but JPL wanted to make sure first that I wasn't giving away any big secrets (really), so I am a few days late. Nevertheless, I am happy that it's out now, and I think that it carries a useful result. Let me see if I can tell you briefly about it in this blog post. (That would be a nice tradition to start, wouldn't it?)
