Drew Keppel for the LSC, Search for gravitational waves from compact binary systems in data during LIGO's Fifth Science Run

We report on a search for gravitational waves from the coalescence of stellar mass compact binaries (neutron stars and black holes) during the fifth LIGO science run. The search focuses on gravitational waves generated during the inspiral phase of the binary evolution. We look for coincidences between at least 2 of the 3 LIGO detectors. We describe the status of the search for these binary systems.
