Status of LIGO data analysis

Gabriela González, Louisiana State University


The LIGO Scientific Collaboration has completed the analysis of the data from its first science run (Aug-Sep 2002), is far along in the analysis of the second science run (Feb-April 2003), and is beginning the analysis of data taken during its third science run (Nov 2003-Jan 2004). We present in this paper an overview of the performance of the instruments during the science runs, of the data analysis efforts completed so far and of the plans for the future.
