Our deep follow-up search results accepted for publication in The Astrophysical Journal: thank you!

May 20, 2020

A new paper on Einstein@Home results was accepted for publication in The Astrophysical Journal!

It describes a deep follow-up of results from the Einstein@Home search on LIGO O1 data for gravitational waves from central compact objects in three supernova remnants. It also presents the first electromagnetic follow-up of a continuous gravitational-wave candidate performed to date.
