Direct observational upper limit to gravitational radiation from millisecond pulsar PSR1937 + 214
The newly discovered millisecond pulsar PSR1937 + 214 has such a high rotational rate, 642 Hz, that any significant quadrupole moment not aligned with the spin axis could lead to a large flux ofExpand

Toward gravitational wave detection
TLDR
An overview of some tools and techniques being developed for data conditioning (regression of instrumental and environmental artifacts from the data channel), detector design evaluation (modeling the science "reach" of alternative detector designs and configurations), noise simulations for mock data challenges and analysis system validation, and analyses for the detection of gravitational radiation from gamma-ray burst sources.

Long baseline gravitational wave detectors-status and developments
Abstract Gravitational waves–a prediction of Einstein’s General Relativity–are among the most elusive signals incident on the Earth. These signals–ripples in the curvature of space-time–carryExpand
