[1201.4656] Coherent follow-up of Continuous Gravitational Wave candidates: minimal required observation time

Authors: Miroslav Shaltev

Date: 23 Jan 2012

Abstract: We derive two different methods to compute the minimal required integration time of a fully coherent follow-up of candidates produced in wide parameter space semi-coherent searches, such as global correlation StackSlide searches using Einstein@Home. We numerically compare these methods in terms of integration duration and computing cost. In a Monte Carlo study we confirm that we can achieve the required detection probability.
