We report on an all-sky search for periodic gravitational waves in the frequency band 20–475 Hz and with a frequency time derivative in the range of [−1.0,+0.1]×10−8  Hz/s. Such a signal could be produced by a nearby spinning and slightly nonaxisymmetric isolated neutron star in our galaxy. This search uses the data from Advanced LIGO’s first observational run, O1. No periodic gravitational wave signals were observed, and upper limits were placed on their strengths. The lowest upper limits on…

All-sky search in early O3 LIGO data for continuous gravitational-wave signals from unknown neutron stars in binary systems

Gravitational waves astronomy allows us to study objects and events invisible in electromagnetic waves. It is crucial to validate the theories and models of the most mysterious and extreme matter in
Convolutional neural network classifier for the output of the time-domain F -statistic all-sky search for continuous gravitational waves
TLDR
1D and 2D versions of a convolutional neural network classifier are implemented, trained and tested on a broad range of signal frequencies and it is demonstrated that these implementations correctly classify the instances of data at various signal-to-noise ratios and signal frequencies, while also showing concept generalization i.e., satisfactory performance at previously unseen frequencies.
How effective is machine learning to detect long transient gravitational waves from neutron stars in a real search?
TLDR
It is determined that CNNs are robust towards signal morphologies that differ from the training set, and they do not require many training injections/data to guarantee good detection efficiency and low false alarm probability.
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.
