I will review the triggers, event reconstructions, background rejection and analysis techniques in IceCube, and what they mean for HEN+GW coincidence searches. I will also describe near-term developments in IceCube which may significantly extend the reach of these searches.

I will review the methods used in "externally triggered" searches for gravitational wave transients. These are scenarios in which we search for a gravitational wave associated with an event detected by an external observatory, such as a gamma-ray burst (GRB), an optical supernova, or a pulsar glitch. Particular emphasis will be placed on methods used in GRB-triggered analyses, and...

Searches for gravitational waves traditionally fall into one of four categories: sub-second bursts, inspirals, pulsars, and stochastic. Inspiral and pulsar searches tend to look for signals with highly constrained waveforms whereas burst and stochastic searches are typically more flexible. Intermediate-duration transients (lasting from a few seconds to a few weeks) represent a largely...

Cataclysmic cosmic events, e.g. gamma ray bursts (GRBs), can be plausible sources of both gravitational waves (GWs) and high-energy neutrinos (HENs). Identifying correlations between GW and HEN detection channels shall enable new searches, as one has significant additional information about the common source. Beyond the benefit of a potential discovery, coincident detection of GW and HEN...
