Searches for periodic gravitational waves from unknown isolated sources and Scorpius X-1: Results from the second LIGO science run
We carry out two searches for periodic gravitational waves using the most sensitive few hours of data from the second LIGO science run. Both searches exploit fully coherent matched filtering andExpand

Optimization on Microcomputers: The Nelder-Mead Simplex Algorithm
TLDR
We describe the Nelder-Mead simplex method for obtaining the minimizer of a function. Expand

All-sky search for periodic gravitational waves in LIGO S4 data
We report on an all-sky search with the LIGO detectors for periodic gravitational waves in the frequency range 50–1000 Hz and with the frequency’s time derivative in the range −1×10^(−8)  Hz s^(−1)Expand

Upper limits from the LIGO and TAMA detectors on the rate of gravitational-wave bursts
We report on the first joint search for gravitational waves by the TAMA and LIGO collaborations. We looked for millisecond-duration unmodeled gravitational-wave bursts in 473 hr of coincident dataExpand

An interactive approach for solving multi-objective optimization problems (interactive computer, nelder-mead simplex algorithm, graphics)
TLDR
Multi-objective optimization problems are characterized by the need to consider multiple, and possibly conflicting, objectives in the solution process. Expand

Upper limits on gravitational wave bursts in LIGO's second science run
We perform a search for gravitational wave bursts using data from the second science run of the LIGO detectors, using a method based on a wavelet time-frequency decomposition. This search isExpand

Search for gravitational-wave bursts in LIGO data from the fourth science run
The fourth science run of the LIGO and GEO 600 gravitational-wave detectors, carried out in early 2005, collected data with significantly lower noise than previous science runs. We report on a searchExpand

Search for gravitational waves from binary black hole inspirals in LIGO data
We report on a search for gravitational waves from binary black hole inspirals in the data from the second science run of the LIGO interferometers. The search focused on binary systems with componentExpand

Search for gravitational waves associated with 39 gamma-ray bursts using data from the second, third, and fourth LIGO runs
We present the results of a search for short-duration gravitational-wave bursts associated with 39 gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) detected by gamma-ray satellite experiments during LIGO’s S2, S3, and S4Expand
