Abstract : With the direct detection of gravitational waves from binary black holes, the new era of gravitational wave astronomy has begun. Besides binary black holes, compact binaries with two neutron stars as well as neutron star/black hole systems emit transient gravitational waves (frequency modulated chirp) that can be detected by the interferometric detectors. Coherent WaveBurst is a wavelet-based detection pipeline for all-sky and all-time searches for short-duration gravitational wave transients. Here, we present Wavegraph, a new time-frequency clustering scheme integrated to coherent WaveBurst that is specifically dedicated to chirp-like gravitational-wave signals such as those emitted by compact binaries. We give a description of this algorithm and its performances.
