Want to see gravitational waves? Here we collect the calculations of theorists around the world determining the waveforms of gravitational radiation expected from various astrophysical sources. Our goal is to facillitate interaction among source modelers, data analysts, and gravitational wave experimentalists. These waveforms can be used for data analysis, experimental simulation and design tasks, and source identification and interpretation.
So far, three anticipated sources of gravitational wave bursts are included below:
This catalog will be continually expanded. We invite authors of additional studies who wish to contribute waveforms to contact the Waveform Catalog Curator, John Baker.
