GWDAW-8 Abstract: Multi-band template analysis for CB search

Frederique MARION · LAPP-Annecy · VIRGO


A multi-band template analysis is being implemented to search for coalescing binaries in the VIRGO data. The algorithm has been tested on engineering run data, and on simulated data during mock data challenges. The software can now be exercised to get first estimates of the computing resources gain as compared to the classical flat search. The talk would present the status of the algorithm implementation, as well as results about the measured gain.
