We perform a sub-threshold follow-up search for continuous nearly-monochromatic gravitational waves from the central compact objects associated with the supernova remnants Vela Jr., Cassiopeia A, and SNR G347.3$-$0.5. Across the three targets, we investigate the most promising ~ 10,000 combinations of gravitational wave frequency and frequency derivative values, based on the results from an Einstein@Home search of the LIGO O1 observing run data, dedicated to these objects. The selection…

Searches for Continuous Gravitational Waves from Young Supernova Remnants in the Early Third Observing Run of Advanced LIGO and Virgo
We present results of three wide-band directed searches for continuous gravitational waves from 15 young supernova remnants in the first half of the third Advanced LIGO and Virgo observing run. We
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.
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
Results From an Einstein@Home Search for Continuous Gravitational Waves From G347.3 at Low Frequencies in LIGO O2 Data
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
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.
Identification and removal of non-Gaussian noise transients for gravitational-wave searches
We present a new gating method to remove non-Gaussian noise transients in gravitational wave data. The method does not rely on any a-priori knowledge on the amplitude or duration of the transient
Search for continuous gravitational waves from 20 accreting millisecond x-ray pulsars in O3 LIGO data
Results are presented of searches for continuous gravitational waves from 20 accreting millisecond X-ray pulsars with accurately measured spin frequencies and orbital parameters, using data from the
Advanced Virgo: Status of the Detector, Latest Results and Future Prospects
The Virgo detector, based at the EGO (European Gravitational Observatory) and located in Cascina (Pisa), played a significant role in the development of the gravitational-wave astronomy. From its
Deep exploration for continuous gravitational waves at 171–172 Hz in LIGO second observing run data
We pursue a novel strategy toward a first detection of continuous gravitational waves from rapidly rotating deformed neutron stars. Computational power is focused on a narrow region of signal
Deep learning for clustering of continuous gravitational wave candidates. II. Identification of low-SNR candidates
TLDR
A network is implemented that can detect clusters due to much fainter signals and a cascade of the two networks achieves an excellent detection efficiency across a wide range of signal strengths, with a false alarm rate comparable/lower than that of methods currently in use.
