Sources of gravitational waves (GW) and emitters of high energy neutrinos (HE ν) both involve compact objects and matter moving at relativistic speeds. GW emission requires a departure from spherical symmetry, which is the case if clumps of matter are accreted around black holes or neutron stars, and ejected in relativistic jets, where neutrinos are believed to be produced. Both messengers interact weakly with the surrounding matter, hence point directly to the heart of the engines that power these emissions. Coincidences between GW interferometers (e.g. VIRGO) and HE ν telescopes (e.g. ANTARES) would then give a unique insight on the physics of the most powerful objects in the Universe. The possibility, observability and detectability for such GW/HE ν coincidences are analysed

The ANTARES project aims to build a deep-sea Cherenkov Telescope for High Energy Neutrino Astronomy located in the Mediterranean Sea. The experiment, currently in the construction phase, has recently achieved an important milestone : the operation of a prototype line and of a line with monitoring instruments. These deployments allowed a thorough understanding of environmental parameters.

Typical sources of gravitational wave bursts are supernovae, for which no accurate models exist. This calls for search methods with high efficiency and robustness to be used in the data analysis of foreseen interferometric detectors. A set of such filters is designed to detect gravitational wave burst signals. We first present filters based on the linear fit of whitened data to short straight lines in a given time window and combine them in a non linear filter named ALF. We study the performances and efficiencies of these filters, with the help of a catalogue of simulated supernova signals. The ALF filter is the most performant and most efficient of all filters. Its performance reaches about 80% of the Optimal Filter performance designed for the same signals. Such a filter could be implemented as an online trigger (dedicated to detect ...
