Description

The Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO) Collaboration’s signal processing software, MaxEnt, is computationally expensive. The goal is to change the data from the time domain to the frequency domain in the code and then back again to eliminate the need for large, unwieldy matrix inverses in an effort to optimize the code to improve detection of gravitational waves. This back and forth conversion is expected to greatly increase the speed of the calculation, thus streamlining the process so data can be covered more efficiently.
