The vulnerability to single-detector instrumental artifacts in standard detection methods for long-duration quasimonochromatic gravitational waves from nonaxisymmetric rotating neutron stars [continuous waves (CWs)] was addressed in past work [D. Keitel et al., Phys. Rev. D 89, 064023 (2014).] by a Bayesian approach. An explicit model of persistent single-detector disturbances led to a generalized detection statistic with improved robustness against such artifacts. Since many strong outliers in… Expand

Faster search for long gravitational-wave transients: GPU implementation of the transient F-statistic
The -statistic is an established method to search for continuous gravitational waves from spinning neutron stars. Prix et al (2011 Phys. Rev. D 84 023007) introduced a variant for transient,Expand
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.Expand
Method to search for long duration gravitational wave transients from isolated neutron stars using the generalized frequency-Hough transform
We describe a method to detect gravitational waves lasting $O(hours-days)$ emitted by young, isolated neutron stars, such as those that could form after a supernova or a binary neutron star merger,Expand
First search for long-duration transient gravitational waves after glitches in the Vela and Crab pulsars
Gravitational waves (GWs) can offer a novel window into the structure and dynamics of neutron stars. Here we present the first search for long-duration quasi-monochromatic GW transients triggered byExpand
A new veto for continuous gravitational wave searches
We present a new veto procedure to distinguish between continuous gravitational wave (CW) signals and the detector artifacts that can mimic their behavior. The veto procedure exploits the fact that aExpand
Application of a hierarchical MCMC follow-up to Advanced LIGO continuous gravitational-wave candidates
We present the first application of a hierarchical Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) followup on continuous gravitational-wave candidates from real-data searches. The follow-up uses an MCMC sampler toExpand
Optimally setting up directed searches for continuous gravitational waves in Advanced LIGO O1 data
In this paper we design a search for continuous gravitational waves from three supernova remnants: Vela Jr., Cassiopeia A (Cas A) and G347.3. These systems might harbor rapidly rotating neutron starsExpand
Weave: a semicoherent search implementation for continuous gravitational waves
TLDR
A new implementation of a semicoherent search method is presented that for the first time makes full use of a parameter-space metric to generate search templates in the correct resolution, combined with optimal lattices to minimize the required number of templates and hence the computational cost of the search.

Gravitational wave transient signal emission via Ekman pumping in neutron stars during post-glitch relaxation phase
Glitches in the rotational frequency of a spinning neutron star could be promising sources of gravitational wave signals lasting between a few microseconds to a few weeks. The emitted signals andExpand
First Low-Frequency Einstein@Home All-Sky Search for Continuous Gravitational Waves in Advanced LIGO Data
We report results of a deep all-sky search for periodic gravitational waves from isolated neutron stars in data from the first Advanced LIGO observing run. This search investigates the low frequencyExpand
