Using weighting algorithms to refine source direction determinations in all-sky gravitational wave burst searches with two-detector networks II: The case of elliptical polarization

I expand on the results of a recent work in which a novel weighting algorithm was shown to substantially increase the accuracy of an old, non-Bayesian computational approach for inferring the source direction of a gravitational wave from the output of a two-detector network. While that work was limited to the consideration of circularly polarized gravitational waves, the current analysis shows that the same approach is even more successful when applied to the generic case of elliptically polarized gravitational waves.
