Search for Continuous Gravitational Waves from the Central Compact Objects in Supernova Remnants Cassiopeia A, Vela Jr., and G347.3–0.5
We perform a sub-threshold follow-up search for continuous nearly-monochromatic gravitational waves from the central compact objects associated with the supernova remnants Vela Jr., Cassiopeia A, and
Results from an Einstein@Home search for continuous gravitational waves from Cassiopeia A, Vela Jr., and G347.3
We report results of the most sensitive search to date for periodic gravitational waves from Cassiopeia A, Vela Jr. and G347.3 with frequency between 20 and 1500 Hz. The search was made possible by
Characterizing the sensitivity of isolated continuous gravitational wave searches to binary orbits
TLDR
The sensitivity of CW searches to signals from sources in binary systems over an exhaustive range of binary orbits is investigated and Monte-Carlo simulations are used to constrain the ranges of binary orbital parameters that leave a CW signal from a source in a binary orbit visible in a search for signals from an isolated source.
Hierarchical follow-up of subthreshold candidates of an all-sky Einstein@Home search for continuous gravitational waves on LIGO sixth science run data
We report results of an all-sky search for periodic gravitational waves with frequency between 50 and 510 Hz from isolated compact objects, e.g., neutron stars. A new hierarchical multistage approach
Results of the deepest all-sky survey for continuous gravitational waves on LIGO S6 data running on the Einstein@Home volunteer distributed computing project
We report results of a deep all-sky search for periodic gravitational waves from isolated neutron stars in data from the S6 LIGO science run. The search was possible thanks to the computing power
An adaptive clustering procedure for continuous gravitational wave searches
TLDR
A procedure that adapts the cluster volume to the data itself and checks for consistency of such volume with what is expected from a signal significantly improves the noise rejection capabilities at fixed detection threshold and results in an overall more sensitive search.
Gravitational wave transient signal emission via Ekman pumping in neutron stars during post-glitch relaxation phase
Glitches in the rotational frequency of a spinning neutron star could be promising sources of gravitational wave signals lasting between a few microseconds to a few weeks. The emitted signals and
Results of an all-sky high-frequency Einstein@Home search for continuous gravitational waves in LIGO's fifth science run
We present results of a high-frequency all-sky search for continuous gravitational waves from isolated compact objects in LIGO's 5th Science Run (S5) data, using the computing power of the
Improved post-processing in searches for continuous gravitational waves and a model for transient continuous gravitational wave emission from neutron star glitches
Gravitational waves (GW) are tiny oscillations in the fabric of space-time, first hypothesised within the framework of Einstein’s General theory of Relativity (GR) a little more than 100 years ago.
