We report results of the most sensitive search to date for periodic gravitational waves from Cassiopeia A, Vela Jr. and G347.3 with frequency between 20 and 1500 Hz. The search was made possible by the computing power provided by the volunteers of the Einstein@Home project and improves on previous results by a factor of 2 across the entire frequency range for all targets. We find no significant signal candidate and set the most stringent upper limits to date on the amplitude of gravitational… 
Search of the Early O3 LIGO Data for Continuous Gravitational Waves from the Cassiopeia A and Vela Jr. Supernova Remnants
We present directed searches for continuous gravitational waves from the neutron stars in the Cassiopeia A (Cas A) and Vela Jr. supernova remnants. We carry out the searches in the LIGO detector data
Directed search for continuous gravitational-wave signals from the Galactic Center in the Advanced LIGO second observing run
In this work we present the results of a search for continuous gravitational waves from the Galactic Center using LIGO O2 data. The search uses the Band-Sampled-Data directed search pipeline, which
Sensitivity Improvements in the Search for Periodic Gravitational Waves Using O1 LIGO Data.
TLDR
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.

We describe directed searches for continuous gravitational waves from twelve well localized non-pulsing candidate neutron stars in young supernova remnants using data from Advanced LIGO's second
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.
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
Status and perspectives of Continuous Gravitational Wave searches
The birth of gravitational wave astronomy has been triggered by the detection of the first signal produced by the merger of two compact objects. The following discoveries by the Earth-based network
Deep-learning continuous gravitational waves
We present a first proof-of-principle study for using deep neural networks (DNNs) as a novel search method for continuous gravitational waves (CWs) from unknown spinning neutron stars. The
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.
Constraining the coherence scale of the interstellar magnetic field using TeV gamma-ray observations of supernova remnants
Galactic cosmic rays (CRs) are believed to be accelerated at supernova remnant (SNR) shocks. In the hadronic scenario, the TeV gamma-ray emission from SNRs originates from decaying pions that are
