Abstract: Matched-filter searches for gravitational waves from coalescing compact binaries by the LIGO Scientific Collaboration use the findchirp algorithm: an implementation of the optimal filter with innovations to account for unknown signal parameters and to improve performance on detector data that has non-stationary and non-Gaussian artifacts. We provide details on the methods used in the findchirp algorithm as used in the search for sub-solar mass binaries, binary neutron stars, neutron star--black hole binaries and binary black holes.
