< <  The cbwaves software calculates the gravitational waves emitted by generic configuration compact binary systems but it is also capable to follow the time evolution of open systems. Our principal aim was to construct highly accurate templates describing waveforms generated by inspiral spinning and eccentric binaries within the PN ramework. We have already carried out some preliminary investigations measuring the effectivity of the template banks, applied currently by the CBC working groups, in recognizing them.

The method  
Changed:  
< <  The cbwaves software calculates the gravitational waves emitted by generic binary neutron stars (BNSs) or binary black holes (BBHs)  with arbitrary orientation of the spins and with arbitrary value of the eccentricity  by direct integration of the equation of motion of the bodies.
 
> >  The cbwaves software calculates the gravitational waves emitted by generic binary neutron stars (BNSs) or binary black holes (BBHs)  with arbitrary orientation of the spins and with arbitrary value of the eccentricity  by direct integration of the equation of motion of the bodies. The radiation field is determined simultaneously in the time domain by evaluating the analytic waveforms relevant for the yielded motion of the sources.

A short summary of the implemented methods and expressions and the specifications of the parameters can be found in the cbwavesdesc.pdf file located in the doc directory coming together with the software. The equations of motion are integrated numerically. The applied method is known to be 4th order accurate. The radiation field is determined in the time domain by evaluating the analitic waveforms relevant for the yielded motion of the sources.

The simulation starts at the turning point of the radial motion determined by the minimal distance of the bodies. The initial orbital frequency is set to 19 Hz (as such, the emitted gravitational wave frequency is 38 Hz) due to the 40 Hz low frequency cutoff of the data usual analysis pipelines but its value is at will.

Circular, nonspinning motions and waveformsWe constructed a nonspinning circular waveform template bank to serve as a reference for the forthcoming studies. Samples for a circular non spinning orbit and for the emitted waveform with slow rise in the amplitude and frequency:

< <  where rmin and rmax is the minimum and maximum distance between the two mass, i.e. the distance in the turning points.  
> >  where rmin and rmax denote the minimum and maximum distances between the two masses, i.e. the distances at the turning points.  
Due to non negligible eccentricity the waveforms suffer a frequency modulation. [On the figures below only a short section of the evolution is indicated.]
Effect of spin, amplitude modulation  
Changed:  
< <  In a case of the inclusion of spins the emitted gravitational wave acquires a considerable large amplitude modulation. On the left panel only one of the bodie possesses spin (s1=0.7) which is aligned with the orbital angular momentum. On the right panel the both of the bodies possess spins (s1=0.7, phi1=0 ; s2=0.4, phi2=pi/3). The modulation is clearly visible in both cases.

Generic waveforms for spinning and eccentric binariesAs indicated above the cbwaves software is capable to determine the evolutions and the yielded waveforms of completely general spinning, eccentric binaries. The simultaneous effect of amplitude and frequency modulation is transparent! Fitting analytic formulas to all the possible waveforms seems not to be feasible.

[Here the overlap of our purely circular and eccentric templetes were determined.]
