Here we describe how to perform the analysis of GWTC-1 Catalog events with the coherent WaveBurst pipeline.
What you need is cWB on your computer and the event data released in the Gravitational Wave Open Science Center ( GWOSC ).
The easiest way to start using cWB on your computer is to install an “image” of cWB within a “virtualized” environment: you can freely choose between the cWB VirtualBox image and the cWB Docker container.
Once you have a working cWB installation (VitualBox, Docker, or directly installed on your system) you will be able to do some basic testing on the list of public confident detections from GWTC-1 (the Gravitational-Wave Transient Catalog of Compact Binary Mergers Observed by LIGO and Virgo during the First and Second Observing Runs) as reported in the GWOSC.
The analysis of GWTC-1 Catalog events can be easily performed with a dedicated cWB command: cwb_gwosc.
The command line to execute the full analysis of GW150914 event is:
cwb_gwosc GW=GW150914 all
The output of the previous command is the Coherent Event Display ( CED ) of the GW150914 event. See the CEDs of the GWTC-1 Catalog
