In this dissertation we study gravitational-wave searches for binary neutron star and neutron star black hole coalescences. We determine the accuracy of postNewtonian approximations as gravitational-wave templates in matched-filter based searches for NSBH mergers. We test a geometric method to generate template banks for BNS and NSBH mergers where the components have intrinsic spin, and estimate the sensitivity to astrophysical sources of searches that use these banks during Advanced LIGO. We… CONTINUE READING
