Abstract

Core-collapse supernovae (CCSNe) are a potential source for ground-based gravitational wave detectors, as their predicted emission peaks in the detectors’ frequency band. Typical searches for gravitational wave bursts reconstruct signals using wavelets. However, as CCSN signals contain multiple complex features in the time-frequency domain, these techniques often struggle to reconstruct the entire signal. An alternative method developed in recent years involves applying principal component analysis (PCA) to a set of simulated CCSN models. This technique enables model selection between astrophysical CCSN models as well as waveform reconstruction. However, PCA faces its own difficulties, such ..
