of these banks towards simulated populations of generic-spin systems. We then use these banks in a pipeline analysis of Gaussian noise to measure the increase in background incurred by using generic- instead of aligned-spin banks. Although the generic-spin banks have a factor of ten to twenty more templates than the aligned-spin banks, we nd an overall improvement in signal recovery at xed false-alarm rate for systems with high-mass ratio and highly precessing spins |up to 60% for neutron-star…
