[0907.0457] Use and Abuse of the Model Waveform Accuracy Standards

Authors: Lee Lindblom

Date: 2 Jul 2009

Abstract: Accuracy standards have been developed to ensure that the waveforms used for gravitational-wave data analysis are good enough to serve their intended purposes. These standards place constraints on certain norms of the frequency-domain representations of the waveform errors. Examples are given here of possible misinterpretations and misapplications of these standards, whose effect could be to vitiate the quality control they were intended to enforce. Suggestions are given for ways to avoid these problems.
