  1. 1. Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) and Bayesian Inference for Gravitational Waves

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Astronomi

    Author : Christine Andersson; [2021]
    Keywords : Gravitational Waves; LISA; LISA mission; Bayesian Inference; Markov Chain Monte Carlo; MCMC; Bayes’ Theorem; stochastic sampling; Metropolis Hastings; histograms; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : The Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) is a space borne gravitational wave detec- tor set to launch in 2034, with the objective of detecting and studying the Gravitational Waves (GWs) of our universe. So far, ground-based detectors such as the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) have been successful in detecting GWs, but the limitations of ground based detectors is what makes LISA so special.

  2. 2. The visibility of double neutron star binaries to LISA

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Astronomi

    Author : Anatole Storck; [2021]
    Keywords : gravitational waves; LISA; neutron stars; orbital simulations; Runge-Kutta method; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Double neutron star binaries (DNSBs) in the mHz gravitational wave (GW) regime are an important group of objects which the GW detector LISA will be able to observe. The detection and parametrization of these objects will help develop our current understanding of neutron star formation and evolution. READ MORE

  3. 3. An Executable System Model for Behavioural Analyses of the LISA Mission

    University essay from KTH/Rymdteknik

    Author : Noé Charpigny; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : This master thesis report presents the modelling process of key elements of the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna mission (LISA mission) in a Modelbased systems engineering (MBSE) approach with SysML (Systems Modeling Language). The model implements a selected set of functions of the mission through executable graphical representations, called diagrams. READ MORE

  4. 4. Thermomechanical Design and Analysis of the Lisa Phase Measurement System

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för system- och rymdteknik

    Author : Pablo Martinez Cano; [2019]
    Keywords : LISA; PCB; temperature; passive; aluminum; aluminium;

    Abstract : Gravitational Waves (GWs) are ripples in the curvature of spacetime that propagate as waves at the speed of light while travelling basically undisturbed from the moment of their creation by accelerated masses. GWs provide unique information about astrophysical sources, such as binary systems, allowing their exploration under a wide range of masses, mass ratios and physical states inaccessible otherwise and therefore opening a new window to observe the universe.

  5. 5. Mobile documentation of vital signs : A Participatory Design project at a Swedish hospital

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för informatik (IK); Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för informatik (IK)

    Author : Lisa Knutsson Fröjd; Marika René; [2016]
    Keywords : mobile; participatory design; healthcare; mHealth; healthcare informatics; vital signs;

    Abstract : We have received a mission from a surgical ward at a hospital in northern Sweden; they want a solution that can be used on portable devices. On these devices the healthcare professionals should be able to document the measured vital signs and the results should automatically be documented in the patient record. READ MORE
