GWDAW-8 Abstract: Searches for Inspiral Signals in LIGO S2 Data

Duncan Brown · UW-Milwaukee · LIGO

The Inspiral Working Group of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration is currently searching for inspiral signals from binary neutron stars (BNS), binary black holes (BBH) and binary black hole MACHOs in the data from the second science run (S2). Details of the analysis methods are discussed and issues arising from applying these methods to S2 data will be presented.
