Notes and Changes:
This is a short paper written by Daniele Nicolodi, Stefano Vitale and William Joseph Weber at Trento. They have investigated gas damping in constrained volumes in their torsional pendulum work for LISA, and have now extended their simulation code to handle the geometry of the Advanced LIGO test masses. This paper presents their results on that extension to Advanced LIGO geometry.
