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)]

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:

7/9/2003LIGO Scientific Collaboration - Amaldi 20039 S1 Inspiral Search: results Use triggers from H 4km and L 4km interferometers: – T = 236 hours – Max SNR observed: 15.9 An event seen in L1 only, with effective distance = 95 kpc There are no event candidates in the coincidence category – Monte Carlo simulation efficiency for SNR=15.9: = 53% – Effective number of Milky Way-equivalent galaxies surveyed: N G = (L pop /L G )=0.53x1.13=0.60 – Uncertainties (calibration, etc):
