A method for a search for inspiral merger and ringdown spin aligned waveforms using NINJA2 mock data sets and GSTLAL.
3:00pm to 4:00pm
Compact binary coalescing systems, that is binary neutron stars, neutron star black hole pairs and binary black hole systems, rep- resent promising candidates for gravitational wave _rst detection and have the potential to provide precise tests of the strong-_eld predictions of general relativity. Observations of BBH systems will provide a wealth of information relevant to fundamental physics, astrophysics and cosmology. The search for such systems is a major priority of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatorys (LIGO) and Virgo collaborations.
A major area of research is incorporating black hole spin into binary black hole searches. In this talk, I will discuss a possible search for the gravitational waves produced by the inspiral, merger and ringdown of spin-aligned BBH systems using a new pipeline called gstlal and the preliminary results of a test search on mock data produced by the Numerical Injection Analysis Two (NINJA2) collaboration
