Comparison between un-modeled and modeled waveform reconstructions: cWB vs LALInference
cWB is a wavelet-based burst method while LALInference is a parameter estimation method that uses the best available binary coalescence models. The comparisons shown here are performed between the cWB wavelet-based reconstruction and the LALInference results on the models listed in the GWTC-2 catalog.
Comparison of cWB and LALInference(LI) maximum likelihood waveforms
GW events in O3a (i.e. the first half of the third observing run by LIGO and Virgo)
cWB GW events list: detected and reconstructed events are shown with a green badge. Those reconstructed with a fine tuning of production thresholds are shown with an orange badge.
