Gravitational waves are minute ripples in spacetime, first predicted by Einstein's general theory of relativity in 1916. Gravitational waves from rapidly-rotating neutron stars, whose shape deviates from perfect axisymmetry, are a potential astrophysical source of gravitational waves, but which so far have not been detected. The search for this type of signals, also known as continuous waves, presents a significant data analysis challenge, as their weak signatures are expected to be buried deep… Expand
