Video Library

Since 2002 Perimeter Institute has been recording seminars, conference talks, and public outreach events using video cameras installed in our lecture theatres.  Perimeter now has 7 formal presentation spaces for its many scientific conferences, seminars, workshops and educational outreach activities, all with advanced audio-visual technical capabilities.  Recordings of events in these areas are all available On-Demand from this Video Library and on Perimeter Institute Recorded Seminar Archive (PIRSA)PIRSA is a permanent, free, searchable, and citable archive of recorded seminars from relevant bodies in physics. This resource has been partially modelled after Cornell University's arXiv.org.

Gravitational wave data analysis of compact binary systems requires the use of matched filtering. This technique cross-correlates the data stream with a certain template that characterizes the gravitational wave signal. Successful parameterestimation thus requires an accurate model of the gravitational wave template. In this talk I will describe a new fast and accurate technique to model the gravitational wave signal from extreme-mass ratio inspirals.
