M.Alessandra Papa · Albert Einstein Institute · GEO


Authors: B. Krishnan, M.A. Papa, A. Sintes We present the search pipeline for continuous gravitational wave signals from isolated sources that we intend to employ on data from the second science run of the LIGO interferometers. The search method is based on a Hough transform technique. The entire pipeline will be presented, together with a description of the statistical analysis.
