Toward low-latency coincident precessing and coherent aligned-spin gravitational-wave searches of compact binary coalescences with particle swarm optimization
We investigate the use of particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm for detection of gravitational-wave signals from compact binary coalescences. We show that the PSO is fast and effective in searching for gravitational wave signals. The PSO-based aligned-spin coincident multi-detector search recovers appreciably more gravitational-wave signals, for a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of 10, the PSO based aligned-spin search recovers approximately 26 $\%$ more events as compared to the template bank searches. The PSO-based aligned-spin coincident search uses 48k matched-filtering operations, and provides a better parameter estimation accuracy at the detection stage, as compared to the PyCBC template-bank search in LIGO's second observation run (O2) with 400k template points. We demonstrate an effective PSO-based precessing coincident search with 320k match-filtering operations per detector. We present results of an all-sky aligned-spin coherent search with 576k match-filtering operations per detector, for some examples of two-, three-, and four-detector networks constituting of the LIGO detectors in Hanford and Livingston, Virgo and KAGRA. Techniques for background estimation that are applicable to real data for PSO-based coincident and coherent searches are also presented.
