Three papers full of new Einstein@Home science are available now on the arXiv preprint server. First low-frequency Einstein@Home all-sky search for continuous gravitational waves in Advanced LIGO data describes our first results from a search in data from the first observation run “O1” of the Advanced LIGO instruments. We did not detect any signals, but our upper limits are the most stringent achieved to date.
Our result paper is accompanied by two papers describing innovative methods used in the search. An adaptive clustering procedure for continuous gravitational wave searches and A new veto for continuous gravitational wave searches are available on the arXiv, too.
All three papers have been submitted to Physical Review D for peer review and publication. We will keep you posted on the progress.
