A Systematic Search for Periodicities in RXTE ASM Data
We present the results of a systematic search in 8.5 years of Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer All-Sky Monitor data for evidence of periodicities. The search was conducted by application of theExpand

Enhanced sensitivity of the LIGO gravitational wave detector by using squeezed states of light
Nearly a century after Einstein first predicted the existence of gravitational waves, a global network of Earth-based gravitational wave observatories1, 2, 3, 4 is seeking to directly detect thisExpand

Characterization of transient noise in Advanced LIGO relevant to gravitational wave signal GW150914.
On September 14, 2015, a gravitational wave signal from a coalescing black hole binary system was observed by the Advanced LIGO detectors. This paper describes the transient noise backgrounds used toExpand

Geometrical Expression for the Angular Resolution of a Network of Gravitational-Wave Detectors
We report for the first time general geometrical expressions for the angular resolution of an arbitrary network of interferometric gravitational-wave (GW) detectors when the arrival time of a GW isExpand

Detection and localization of single-source gravitational waves with pulsar timing arrays
Pulsar timing arrays (PTAs) can be used to search for very low frequency (10(-9)-10(-7) Hz) gravitational waves (GWs). In this paper, we present a general method for the detection and localization ofExpand

Status of the GEO600 detector
Of all the large interferometric gravitational-wave detectors, the German/British project GEO600 is the only one which uses dual recycling. During the four weeks of the international S4 data-takingExpand

Search for gravitational waves from compact binary coalescence in LIGO and Virgo data from S5 and VSR1
We report the results of the first search for gravitational waves from compact binary coalescence using data from the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory and Virgo detectors. FiveExpand

Coherent Network Detection of Gravitational Waves: The Redundancy Veto
A network of gravitational wave detectors is called redundant if, given the direction to a source, the strain induced by a gravitational wave in one or more of the detectors can be fully expressed inExpand

The Mock LISA Data Challenges: from Challenge 1B to Challenge 3
The Mock LISA Data Challenges are a programme to demonstrate and encourage the development of LISA data-analysis capabilities, tools and techniques. At the time of this workshop, three rounds ofExpand

Detection and localization of continuous gravitational waves with pulsar timing arrays: The role of pulsar terms
A pulsar timing array is a Galactic-scale detector of nanohertz gravitational waves (GWs). Its target signals contain two components: the `Earth term' and the `pulsar term' corresponding to GWsExpand
