GWDAW-8 Abstract: Efficiency of template banks for binary detection

Thomas Cokelaer · Cardiff University · GEO


In the framework of matched filtering detection, which is the most promising method for the detection of gravitational waves emitted from coalescing binaries, we are going to present different banks of templates and their efficiency to catch a simulated signal where the templates which composed the banks as well as the simulated signals are based either on theoritical or phenomenological assumptions. For instance, the first category of templates might be the so-called PN approximant or Effective One Body method whereas the second category might be the so-called BCV templates. We perform the results using MonteCarlo simulation with both theoritical and simulated spectrum noise and focus more especially on the efficiency of the BCV template bank.
