  • We searched for an anisotropic background of gravitational waves usingdata from the LIGO S4 science run and a method that is optimizedfor point sources. This is appropriate if, for example, the gravitationalwave background is dominated by a small number of distinct astrophysical sources.No signal was seen. Upper limit maps were produced assuming two differentpower laws for the source strain power spectrum. For an f-3 power law and using the50 Hz to 1.8 kHz band the upper limits on the… CONTINUE READING
