Conference paper


The author reports the analysis of gravitational wave and neutrino detectors over a period of 18 hours that includes the Mont Blanc 5 neutrino burst time (22–23 February 1987). There is statistical evidence for correlations during a period of about two hours, centered on the 5 neutrino burst: the effect is mainly due to a dozen of large amplitude Maryland and Rome events. The interpretation of these events as due to gravitational radiation from SN1987A should be rejected, according to the standard theory of the cross-section of g.w. detectors, since it would imply an emission of energy too large by a factor of about 104.
