Title: PyCBC searches for gravitational waves from compact binary coalescence in advanced detectors (more or less)
Abstract: The worldwide advanced gravitational-wave detector network has, until recently, primarily consisted of the two Advanced LIGO observatories at Hanford and Livingston. With the addition of Advanced Virgo, KAGRA and a further, upcoming, LIGO detector in India, Gravitational-wave search methods would therefore benefit from the ability to analyse data from an arbitrary network of detectors. I will describe the PyCBC offline compact binary coalescence search and how it has been adapted to analyse to three or more detectors, and the effect this has on the sensitivity of the search.
