Abstract

With LIGO coming back online soon, astronomers are attempting to solve the problems involved with coupling gravitational observations with electromagnetic telescope observations. To do this, my project aims to create all-sky surveys to characterize natural variability to reduce "false-alarm" rates in detections of gravitational emissions.
