3 7/9/2003LIGO Scientific Collaboration - Amaldi 20033 How to detect inspiral waves Use template based matched filtering algorithm Template waveforms for non-spinning binaries – 2.0 post-Newtonian approx. D: effective distance; a: phase Discrete set of templates labeled by I=(m1, m2) – 1.0 Msun < m1, m2 < 3.0 Msun – 2110 templates – At most 3% loss in SNR s(t) = (1Mpc/D) x [ sin(a) h I s (t-t0) + cos(a) h I c (t-t0)]

4 7/9/20034 Optimal Filtering Using FFTs Transform data to frequency domain : Calculate template in frequency domain : Combine, weighting by power spectral density of noise, and then inverse Fourier transform gives the filter output at all times: Find maxima of over arrival time and phase

5 7/9/2003LIGO Scientific Collaboration - Amaldi 20035 “Chi-Squared Veto” Many large glitches in the data can lead to a filter output with large SNR The essence of a “chirp” is that the signal power is distributed over frequencies in a particular way Divide template into sub-bands (p=8) and calculate  2 : Correct for large signals which fall between points in template bank and apply a threshold cut:

7 Results of a search Candidates and their significance (detections?). Upper limits on rate of coalescences (frequentist or Bayesian).
