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…

Can we use next-generation gravitational wave detectors for terrestrial precision measurements of Shapiro delay?
Shapiro time delay is one of the fundamental tests of general relativity and post-Newtonian theories of gravity. Consequently, its measurements can be used to probe the parameter $\gamma$ which is
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 deep learning network is implemented that identifies clusters of signal candidates in the output of continuous gravitational wave searches and achieves a detection efficiency higher than 97% with a very low false alarm rate.
Searches for Continuous Gravitational Waves from Young Supernova Remnants in the Early Third Observing Run of Advanced LIGO and Virgo

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
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 was triggered by the first detection of a signal produced by the merger of two compact objects (also known as a compact binary coalescence event). 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.
