# Analysis of birefringence and dispersion effects from spacetime-symmetry breaking in gravitational waves

@inproceedings{ONealAult2021AnalysisOB, title={Analysis of birefringence and dispersion effects from spacetime-symmetry breaking in gravitational waves}, author={Kellie O'Neal-Ault and Quentin G. Bailey and Tyann Dumerchat and Leila Haegel and Jay D. Tasson}, year={2021} }

In this work, we review the effective field theory framework to search for Lorentz and CPT symmetry breaking during the propagation of gravitational waves. The article is written so as to bridge the gap between the theory of spacetime-symmetry breaking and the analysis of gravitationalwaves signals detected by ground-based interferometers. The primary physical effects beyond General Relativity that we explore here are dispersion and birefringence of gravitational waves. We discuss their… Expand
