An error has been found in the computation of the C parameter defined in Eq. (44), which led to its overestimation by a factor 2(1/4). The correct values for C are 9.2, 9.7, and 9.3 for the multi-interferometer, H1 and L1 analyses, respectively. None of the upper limits presented in the article were affected.

Sensitivity Improvements in the Search for Periodic Gravitational Waves Using O1 LIGO Data.

With a large scale search for continuous gravitational waves on the O1 LIGO data, the Falcon search achieves the sensitivity improvements expected from the use of a long coherence length, while maintaining the computational expense within manageable bounds.

Observational results from the LIGO and Virgo detectors

The first generation of ground-based interferometric gravitational wave detectors, LIGO, GEO and Virgo, have operated and taken data at their design sensitivities over the last few years. The data

All-sky search of NAUTILUS data

A search for periodic gravitational-wave signals from isolated neutron stars in the NAUTILUS detector data is presented. We have analyzed half a year of data over the frequency band ⟨922.2; 923.2⟩

Searching for gravitational waves from Cassiopeia A with LIGO

We describe a search underway for periodic gravitational waves from the central compact object in the supernova remnant Cassiopeia A. The object is the youngest likely neutron star in the Galaxy. Its

Gravitational waves from rotating neutron stars: Current limits and prospects

Rotating neutron stars that emit continuous gravitational waves are among promising targets of the LIGO and Virgo detectors: sufficiently large non-axisymmetrie deformation w.r.t. the axis of

Search for gravitational waves from a nearby neutron star using barycentric resampling

Rapidly spinning neutron stars in our Galactic neighborhood are promising sources of quasi-monochromatic continuous gravitational waves observable by the current LIGO detectors. I describe a search

Comparison of methods for the detection of gravitational waves from unknown neutron stars

Rapidly rotating neutron stars are promising sources of continuous gravitational wave radiation for the LIGO and Virgo interferometers. The majority of neutron stars in our galaxy have not been

Physics, Astrophysics and Cosmology with Gravitational Waves

The most likely sources of gravitational waves are studied and the data analysis methods that are used to extract their signals from detector noise are reviewed, and the consequences of gravitational wave detections and observations for physics, astrophysics, and cosmology are considered.

All-sky coherent search for continuous gravitational waves in 6-7 Hz band with a torsion-bar antenna

A torsion-bar antenna (TOBA) is a low-frequency terrestrial gravitational wave (GW) antenna which consists of two orthogonal bar-shaped test masses. We upgraded the prototype TOBA and achieved the



Calibration of the LIGO detectors for S3

We describe the methods used to calibrate the LIGO interferometer responses for the S3 run, as well as results and an error analysis.
