[0803.0786] On the independent points in the sky for the search of periodic gravitational wave

Authors: S.K. Sahay

Abstract: We investigate the independent points in the sky require to search the periodic gravitational wave, assuming the noise power spectral density to be flat. We have made an analysis with different initial azimuth of the Earth for a week data set. The analysis shows significant difference in the independent points in the sky for the search. We numerically obtain an approximate relation to make trade-off between computational cost and sensitivities. We also discuss the feasibility of the coherent search in small frequency band in reference to advanced LIGO.
