Short Description of the Use Case

Gravitational waves (gw) are 'ripples' in space-time caused by some of the most violent and energetic processes in the Universe. Albert Einstein predicted the existence of gravitational waves in 1916 in his general theory of relativity. Einstein's mathematics showed that massive accelerating objects (such as neutron stars or black holes orbiting each other) would disrupt space-time in such a way that 'waves' of undulating space-time would propagate in all directions away from the source. These cosmic ripples would travel at the speed of light, carrying with them information about their origins, as well as clues to the nature of gravity itself.


At you could find many interesting tutorial on how read plot and analyze with standard technique the gravitational files 

How to execute it

Download data files (any files at will be good) and execute the Jupyter notebook ( For convenience in the Jupyter we assume to work with hdf5 files,the interesting part is how the output of an encoded signal (gw) differ from an encoded noise (compare their size and their entropy). For example try to encode different data...
