Progress towards gravitational-wave astronomy
I will review the most recent and interesting results from gravitational-wave detection experiments, concentrating on recent results from the LIGO Scientific Collaboration (LSC). I will outline the
We present direct upper limits on continuous gravitational wave emission from the Vela pulsar using data from the Virgo detector's second science run. These upper limits have been obtained using
First search for gravitational waves from known pulsars with advanced LIGO
We present the result of searches for gravitational waves from 200 pulsars using data from the first observing run of the Advanced LIGO detectors. We find no significant evidence for a
We present a search for gravitational waves from 116 known millisecond and young pulsars using data from the fifth science run of the LIGO detectors. For this search, ephemerides overlapping the run
Gravitational Wave Astronomy
As several large scale interferometers are beginning to take data at sensitivities where astrophysical sources are predicted, the direct detection of gravitational waves may well be imminent. This
Upper and lower limits on the Crab pulsar's astrophysical parameters set from gravitational wave observations by LIGO: braking index and energy considerations
The Laser Interferometer Gravitational Observatory (LIGO) has recently reached the end of its fifth science run (S5), having collected more than a year worth of data. Analysis of the data is still
Observational results from the LIGO and Virgo detectors
The first generation of ground-based interferometric gravitational wave detectors, LIGO, GEO and Virgo, have operated and taken data at their design sensitivities over the last few years. The data
Designing a cross-correlation search for continuous-wave gravitational radiation from a neutron star in the supernova remnant SNR 1987A
A strategy is devised for a semi-coherent cross-correlation search for a young neutron star in the supernova remnant SNR 1987A, using science data from the Initial LIGO and/or Virgo detectors. An
Searching for gravitational waves from Cassiopeia A with LIGO
We describe a search underway for periodic gravitational waves from the central compact object in the supernova remnant Cassiopeia A. The object is the youngest likely neutron star in the Galaxy. Its
We describe directed searches for continuous gravitational waves (GWs) in data from the sixth Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) science data run. The targets were nine young


Searching for gravitational waves from known pulsars
We present upper limits on the amplitude of gravitational waves from 28 isolated pulsars using data from the second science run of LIGO. The results are also expressed as a constraint on the pulsars'
Limits on gravitational-wave emission from selected pulsars using LIGO data.
The unprecedented sensitivity of the detectors allows us to set strain upper limits as low as a few times 10(-24), which translate into limits on the equatorial ellipticities of the pulsars, which are smaller than 10(-5) for the four closest pulsars.
Setting upper limits on the strength of periodic gravitational waves from PSR J1939+2134 using the first science data from the GEO 600 and LIGO detectors
Data collected by the GEO 600 and LIGO interferometric gravitational wave detectors during their first observational science run were searched for continuous gravitational waves from the pulsar
Revised estimate of gravitational radiation from Crab and Vela pulsars
PROGRESS in the development of ultra-high-Q dielectric crystals (Bagdasarov et al. unpublished data) has caused experimenters in the field of general relativity to look for rotation-induced
Bayesian estimation of pulsar parameters from gravitational wave data
We present a method of searching for, and parametrizing, signals from known radio pulsars in data from interferometric gravitational wave detectors. This method has been applied to data from the LIGO
Searching for gravitational waves from the Crab pulsar—the problem of timing noise
Of the current known pulsars, the Crab pulsar (B0531+21) is one of the most promising sources of gravitational waves. The relatively large timing noise of the Crab causes its phase evolution to
Direct observational upper limit to gravitational radiation from millisecond pulsar PSR1937 + 214
The newly discovered millisecond pulsar PSR1937 + 214 has such a high rotational rate, 642 Hz, that any significant quadrupole moment not aligned with the spin axis could lead to a large flux of
Tests of General Relativity from Timing the Double Pulsar
By measuring relativistic corrections to the Keplerian description of the orbital motion, it is found that the “post-Keplerian” parameter s agrees with the value predicted by general relativity within an uncertainty of 0.05%, the most precise test yet obtained.
Further experimental tests of relativistic gravity using the binary pulsar PSR 1913+16
Fourteen-year observations of the binary pulsar PSR 1913 + 16 provided data consistent with a straightforward model allowing for the motion of the earth, special and general relativistic effects
Observational constraints on hyperons in neutron stars
The possibility that neutron stars may contain substantial hyperon populations has important implications for neutron-star cooling and, through bulk viscosity, the viability of the r-modes of
