[1009.0608] Bounce hardness index of gravitational waves

Abstract: We present a method of mode analysis to search for signals with frequency evolution and limited duration in data streams of gravitational wave detectors. The frequency precision and time resolution of the frequency evolution with our method are beyond those of Fourier analysis. Applications of this method to the analysis of in-spiral and burst signals show that the signals are characterized by an index which we name "bounce hardness". The index corresponds to the growth rate of the signals.
