Searching for unexpected signals in the LIGO gravitational wave events
The first Gravitational Wave detection of GW150914 led to a revolution in the world of modern physics and astronomy,
beyond being an additional confirmation for the predictions of Einstein's General Relativity,
it opened the gates of Experimental Physics to data that couldn't have been observed in any other way before that,
and capable of testing theories that before the GW era had no other way of being proved.
In my talk, i'll analyze some of the LIGO results from a different point of view respect to the one commonly adopted by LIGO,
by looking for statistically significant correlations in the data between the LIGO gravitational wave detectors.
Said method, even though wouldn't be the best choice for a blind search of new gravitational wave events, may be used to infer properties of already known detections,
as well as testing deviation of the data from the prediction of standard theories and test out new ones.
