HTCondor role in Nobel-winning gravitational wave discovery

October 5, 2017

The Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) unlocked the final door to Albert Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, winning the Nobel prize this week and proving that gravitational waves produce ripples through space and time. Since 2004, HTCondor has been a core part of the data analysis effort. See this recent article , as well as this one, for more details.
