We report results of a deep all-sky search for periodic gravitational waves from isolated neutron stars in data from the S6 LIGO science run. The search was possible thanks to the computing power provided by the volunteers of the Einstein@Home distributed computing project. We find no significant signal candidate and set the most stringent upper limits to date on the amplitude of gravitational wave signals from the target population. At the frequency of best strain sensitivity, between 170.5…

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
Improved post-processing in searches for continuous gravitational waves and a model for transient continuous gravitational wave emission from neutron star glitches
Gravitational waves (GW) are tiny oscillations in the fabric of space-time, first hypothesised within the framework of Einstein’s General theory of Relativity (GR) a little more than 100 years ago.
