# Search for gravitational waves from 12 young supernova remnants with a hidden Markov model in Advanced LIGO’s second observing run

@article{Millhouse2020SearchFG, title={Search for gravitational waves from 12 young supernova remnants with a hidden Markov model in Advanced LIGO’s second observing run}, author={Margaret Millhouse and L C Strang and Andrew Melatos}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2020}, volume={102} }

Persistent gravitational waves from rapidly rotating neutron stars, such as those found in some young supernova remnants, may fall in the sensitivity band of the advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (aLIGO). Searches for these signals are computationally challenging, as the frequency and frequency derivative are unknown and evolve rapidly due to the youth of the source. A hidden Markov model (HMM), combined with a maximum-likelihood matched filter, tracks rapid frequency…
