We present results of a search for periodic gravitational wave signals with frequencies between 20 and 400 Hz from the neutron star in the supernova remnant G347.3-0.5 using LIGO O2 public data. The search is deployed on the volunteer computing project Einstein@Home, with thousands of participants donating compute cycles to make this endeavour possible. We find no significant signal candidate and set the most constraining upper limits to date on the amplitude of gravitational wave signals from… 

First Constraining Upper Limits on Gravitational-wave Emission from NS 1987A in SNR 1987A

We report on a search for continuous gravitational waves (GWs) from NS 1987A, the neutron star born in SN 1987A. The search covered a frequency band of 75–275 Hz, included a wide range of spin-down

A frequency resolved atlas of the sky in continuous gravitational waves

We present the first atlas of the continuous gravitational wave sky, produced using LIGO O3a public data. For each 0.045 Hz frequency band and every point on the sky the atlas provides upper limits,

Search Methods for Continuous Gravitational-Wave Signals from Unknown Sources in the Advanced-Detector Era

Continuous gravitational waves are long-lasting forms of gravitational radiation produced by persistent quadrupolar variations of matter. Standard expected sources for ground-based interferometric

Constraints on r-modes and Mountains on Millisecond Neutron Stars in Binary Systems

Continuous gravitational waves are nearly monochromatic signals emitted by asymmetries in rotating neutron stars. These signals have not yet been detected. Deep all-sky searches for continuous

All-sky, all-frequency directional search for persistent gravitational waves from Advanced LIGO’s and Advanced Virgo’s first three observing runs

Application of a hierarchical MCMC follow-up to Advanced LIGO continuous gravitational-wave candidates

TLDR
All but five outliers are inconsistent with an astrophysical origin under the standard continuous wave signal model, and four are ascribed to instrumental artifacts and a strong hardware injection present in the data.

Empirically estimating the distribution of the loudest candidate from a gravitational-wave search

TLDR
This work introduces a new approach using extreme value theory to describe the distribution of the loudest template’s detection statistic in an arbitrary template bank, which automatically generalizes to a wider class of detection statistics, and improves the estimation of the expected maximum detection statistic at a negligible computing cost.
