Upper Limits on Gravitational Waves from Scorpius X-1 from a Model-based Cross-correlation Search in Advanced LIGO Data
(IOP Publishing, 2017-09-20)
We present the results of a semicoherent search for continuous gravitational waves from the low-mass X-ray binary Scorpius X-1, using data from the first Advanced LIGO observing run. The search method uses details of the ...
A Fermi Gamma-Ray Burst Monitor Search for Electromagnetic Signals Coincident with Gravitational-wave Candidates in Advanced LIGO's First Observing Run
(IOP Publishing, 2019-01-20)
We present a search for prompt gamma-ray counterparts to compact binary coalescence gravitational wave (GW) candidates from Advanced LIGO's first observing run (O1). As demonstrated by the multimessenger observations of ...
High-order difference and pseudospectral methods for discontinuous problems
High order finite-difference or spectral methods are typically problematic in approximating a function with a jump discontinuity. Some common remedies come with a cost in accuracy near discontinuities, or in computational ...
