Online Pipelines

A number of search pipelines run in a low latency, online mode. These can be divided into two groups, modeled and unmodeled. The modeled (CBC) searches specifically look for signals from compact binary mergers of neutron stars and black holes (BNS, NSBH, and BBH systems). The unmodeled (Burst) searches on the other hand, are capable of detecting signals from a wide variety of astrophysical sources in addition to compact binary mergers: core-collapse of massive stars, magnetar star-quakes, and more speculative sources such as intersecting cosmic strings or as-yet unknown GW sources.
