How does/would this collaborative activity benefit the LSC and Virgo?

Look for GW from anomalous X-ray pulsars (AXPs), which are thought to be magnetars, similar to SGRs.

Are there other individuals/groups who could provide similar benefits?

If so, what is the scientific and/or practical justification for pursuing this particular collaboration?

Are any joint proposals planned to be submitted, e.g. for funding or for telescope time?

If so, indicate what will be proposed, to what agency or entity, and who will be listed as the investigator(s).

Describe any paper(s) which will/might result from this collaboration


What preliminary studies (if any) have been done or are currently being done?
