For the most part, one of our main interests is the search
for signals whose wave-forms are characterized
by unknown values of a set of parameters (for binary inspiral, these
would be and ).
In order to use the matched filtering technique described in the previous section,
it is necessary to set up a ``bank" of templates, designed so that any
expected signal is ``close" (in parameter space) to one of
the elements of the bank.
This section contains a set of routines for setting up such a template bank,
in the case where the signals are parameterized by two parameters.
GRASP Routines: Template Bank Generation & Searching
It also contains a (parallel) routine to search for binary inspiral
in a bank of templates.
